Fatal Speed

Maximum velocity can be fatal
Go one mph too fast and you may die
Feel the fat scraping off your bones
Your hair ripping back from your skull

Death by speed
Is like diving off the Golden Gate
Before you know it it's too late
Your skin is coming away from flesh

Running so fast you feel faint
Dying a little every day
We fight the pain away
To decorate our hearts with

Trophies of the races we ran
The fights we fought
The small deaths we died
And the apologies we made to our friends and foes

Never forget what you have heard
Never forget what you have seen
Never forget what you have felt
And never forget those you have loved deeply...even strangers...
