Lyrics

When the melody precedes the words
What do you sing?
What do you sing?

When the words precede the storybook
What do you read?
What do you read?

When the storybook precedes events
What do you do?
What do you do?

And when all events precede a thought
What do you say?
What would you say?

'Cos you can't pass the speed the light
When thought becomes deed becomes destiny
'Cos you can't pass the speed the light
And I tried and you tried and now here we are

And when gravity is never enough
Where do you fall?
Where do you fall?

And when atomic forces fall apart
Where do you run?
Where do you run?

And when magnetism draws you in
Where do you hide?
Where do you hide?

And when radiation 's all that's left
How'd you survive?
Would you survive?

'Cos you can't beat the speed the light
When thought becomes deed becomes energy
'Cos you can't beat the speed the light
And I tried and you tried and now here we are
