Tunnel vision at blinding speed
Controlling my thoughts, obsessing me
Void of any uncertainty
Throughout my very soul

Lost illusions of my control
Resisting all hope of letting go
Racing impulse of dark desire
Drives me through the night

I tried to shut it down
It leaves me in the dust
No matter what I've found
I can never get enough

Frantic actions of insanity
Impulsive laced profanity
Long for elusive serenity
Way out of my control

Traveling through both space and time
Out of body, out of mind
Out of control
My wheels in constant motion

Spinning round and round it goes
I can't let up, I can't let go
Can't stop this flame from burning
Forever more into the night blistering

Focus here, focus there
Cannot see the light
Falling down through the night
Sprawling everywhere

Searching left, searching right
Panic setting in
I can no longer fight
When will this end?

Accelerate, dislocate
Set to crash and burn
Havent got time to waste
Not planning to return

Aggravate, agitate
When will I ever learn?
There's no way out of here
Nowhere to turn

Obsessive yearning
Compulsive burning
Still never learning
Insane random thoughts of neat disorder

Scattered wasteland surrounding me
Tattered memories of what used to be
Apocalyptic mind debris
Until we meet again

Traveling through both space and time
Out of body, out of mind
Out of control
My wheels in constant motion

Spinning round and round it goes
I can't let up, I can't let go
Can't stop this flame from burning
Forever more into the night blistering

Traveling through both space and time
Out of body, out of mind
Out of control
My wheels in constant motion

Spinning round and round it goes
I can't let up, I can't let go
Can't stop this flame from burning
Can't stop the wheels from turning

Traveling through both space and time
You get yours and I got mine
Out of control
My wheels in constant motion

Spinning round and round it goes
I can't let up, I can't let go
Can't stop this flame from burning
Forever more into the night blistering
