No time for consequence to get in my way,
You’ll find me godless and dreaming
Of imperfections left by my heels.

I shape myself for the love of it all
And my language gets broken,
Accelerating, perfecting my walk,
I got no ties to hold, my position is all.

You build a star for yourself
While you’re breaking up from all sides.
See your beautiful sons streamlined and speeding.

I let nothing and nobody get close
For while your lovers surround you,
I watch you falter, I watch you get slow.
I have no love to show, my position is all.

You keep on holding out for love
When everyone just kills you.
All your words just leave me cold,
I’m done with that, I’m safe and sound.
