The silent stray inertia,
No burden on my back.
No determinance, no ballast,
No chance of looking back.
It doesn't matter what's ahead,
It's time I'll hit it hard.
No fixing my position,
No sign of retard.

It's the fast life,
There's nothing I can do.
The fast life,
Suck it in and follow through.
The fast life,
Just learning as I go.
You might call it careless,
But this fast life
Is all I've ever known.

Like a wispy feather
Defying gravity,
Or a rolling cobble
In the middle of the stream,
Propelled by a ghost force
That never shows his face,
Increase the ante
Of this perpetual pace.

It's the fast life,
There's nothing I can do.
The fast life,
Suck it in and follow through.
The fast life,
Just learning as I go.
You might call it careless,
But this fast life
Is all I've ever known.

Ever since the day
I came out of the womb,
My head was always bouncing
Off the walls in the room,
Always scratching gravel,
Covering new ground.
No matter how hard they tried,
They couldn't pin me down.

It's the fast life,
There's nothing I can do.
The fast life,
Suck it in and follow through.
The fast life,
Just learning as I go.
You might call it careless,
But this fast life
Is all I've ever known.
Yeah, it's all I've ever known.
