lyrics

Slow down... I know we got places to go,

presentations to show, bills taxes and loans.

But, life goes on lets not focus on the wrongs,

lets take a step back and survey where were at.

sometimes its hard to see, the possibilities,

when your stuck in high gear,

and your running from your fears.

We need to find a way out,

we need to find a way out,

Even if it takes a scream or a shout,

we need to find a way find a way.


Fast cars, moving stairs that go nowhere,

jet planes and inner city subway trains,

they move us so fast we can hardly relax,

we need to siphon what we lost,

we need to think about the cost,

oh and just 30 years ago,

we thought that we should grow,

and we grew up way to fast,

and we grew up way to fast.


Things used to be so simple,

now were stuck in routine,

living this life around a schedule,

it just isn’t for me.


(So why are we so addicted,

to worrying about the little things,

when they make us feel so constricted,

why cant we stop...and think...)

So stop and smell a rose,

feel the sand sink between your toes,

oh just sit and watch the water rise,

or run and catch a fire fly.

Make time you got to make the time,

don’t just sit and wonder why, make time..


Things used to be so simple,

now were stuck in routine,

living this life around a schedule,

it just isn’t for me..


Slow down, Slow down.

We need to find a way out,

we need to find a way out.

And we grew up,

and we grew up,

and we grew up…way to fast.
