"Speed of Sound" Lyrics

4.7 / 5
Song updated, review now!
How long before I get in?
Before it starts, before I begin?
How long before you decide?
Before I know what it feels like?

Where to, where do I go?
If you never try, then you'll never know
How long do I have to climb?
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

Look up, I look up at night
Planets are moving at the speed of light
Climb up, up in the trees
Every chance that you get is a chance you seize

How long am I gonna stand?
With my head stuck under the sand?
I'll start before I can stop
Before I see things the right way up

All that noise, and all that sound
All those places I got found

And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began

Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand

Ideas that you'll never find
All the inventors could never design
The buildings that you put up
Japan and China all lit up

The sign that I couldn't read
Or the light that I couldn't see
Some things you have to believe
But others are puzzles, puzzling me

All that noise, and all that sound
All those places I got found

And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began

Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand
Oh when you see it then you'll understand

All those signs, I knew what they meant
Some things you can't invent
Some get made, and some get sent, Ooh

And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began

Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand
Oh when you see it then you'll understand
