The Finish Line

They raise you from your cradle
They point you to the light
They say listen and learn, hold all you can fit inside
Cos you’re up against Mother Nature
And all of human kind
The sooner you make the jump
You can race to the finish line

No don’t waste your time
You better start the climb
Don’t just stand at the bottom of this mountain
Head straight for the finish line

So I carved my way through the masses
I jumped aboard a hollow train
On my hot pursuit for the end of the game
And in my hands I hold nothing
Cos I’m on the fly, I’m always on this chase
In my rushed, tenacious drive, coming from behind, heading straight for first place

No don’t waste your time
You better start the climb
Don’t just stand at the bottom of this mountain
Head straight for the finish line

Success if a fleeting myth
You can’t hold it steady in hand
It’s just like greed we all want more than we can ever have
And you’ll find you’re forever running
With no time to be satisfied
All the while we’ll all wind up at that finish line
All the while we’ll all wind up at the same line…

No don’t waste your time
You better start the climb
Don’t just stand at the bottom of this mountain
Head straight for the finish line
