All these things growing, we don't stay the same size
We slow down and we speed up sometimes
It will surprise, it will surprise you when you get the good news
You get what you want and you don't know what to do

It is a blurred line between taking on one more victory lap and being on the run
It's just our path, now watch us fly, just a blur going by
Watch us fly, by now we've got hostages, too
And if we don't get what we want, well, you don't know what we'll do

What to do with the silvery mirror of the new reign
With the wrinkles in our little stars, time and time again
High fives all around, we can speed up or slow them
You worked like a charm, why'd you think you were broken?

We're lucky, lucky because we don't like to lose
We went crawling through the failures for clues
And we bet both lives, you can put yours with mine
Bet both lives, used them for hostages, too
And if we don't get what we want, well, you don't know what we'll do

What to do with the silvery mirror of the new reign
With the wrinkles in our little stars, time and time again
High fives all around, we can speed up or slow them
You worked like a charm, why'd you think you were broken?
