Song progression:
[Intro] x1
[Riff 1] x4 /w lyrics:
To live between a rock and a hard place, in between time,
cruising in prime time, soaking up the cathode rays.
To live between the wars in our time, living in real time,
holding the good time, holding onto yesterday.
[Riff 2] x1
[Riff 2] x3 /w lyrics:
You know how that rabbit feels, going under your speeding wheels.
Bright images flashing by like windshields towards a fly.
Frozen in the fatal climb but the wheels of time just pass you by.
[Riff 3a] x1
[Riff 3a] x3 /w lyrics:
Wheels can take you around. Wheels can cut you down.
You can go from boom to bust, from dreams to a bowl of dust.

[Riff 1] x4 /w lyrics:
It slips between your hands like water, this living in real time.
A dizzying life-time, reeling by on celluloid.
Struck between the eyes by the big-time world, walking uneasy streets,
Hiding beneath the sheets, got to try and fill the void.
[Riff 2] x1
