All the things they said would happen to you
Don't you know they're all coming true?
Goin' nowhere fast

Nothing's strange as when it seems
You're living out all your worst possible dreams
Goin' nowhere fast

Bad times, worse times, all the times in between
I stumble in my shadow, I tangle in the trees
Goin' nowhere fast

I learned my lesson and I learned it again
I heard what they said, live fast and die stupid
Goin' nowhere fast

My compass is spinning like a gambling wheel
It takes a hideous misfortune for to tell how I feel
Goin' nowhere fast

I threw it all away like shoes into the street
These terrible things will tear me in three
Goin' nowhere fast

I don't care what time will tell
Just tell me if I might as well be halfway to hell
Goin' nowhere fast

I'm sick to my skin with silence and doom
I'll break my back, I'll cry on the moon
Goin' nowhere fast

Goin' nowhere fast
