It's a fact, and that fact holds together other facts
Taken together here and now you can't go back
You've become your own momentum
It's a framework that holds it all in place
But I say! What a day! Are you sure that you're alone?
This is a call made just for you,
So please pick up the white courtesy phone

There's no time left to decide
You can jump aboard an unforgettable ride
Leave the keys on the table, let the screen door slam
Lean into the turns, we won't give a damn where we end up
All we need is speed
So leave behind those dead suburban dreams and let's go

Oh I know, it's all a bit much to take just on faith
I must have some nerve to be here in the first place
But don't you want to see what's on the other side?
Over the rise? I tell you it's not so far away
So pack a small bag, we leave today


First life, it's a new life
