Perfect Perfect Faster Faster

by Duncan Jones

I was the best
Passed any test
Untouchable but not that steady
So hit the gym
Get big like him
Now this time I think I’m ready

So strong and fast!
How can I last?
It won’t be too much longer
I run and dash
Life flashing past
Perhaps I should get stronger ...

What the hell?
Don’t feel so well
Where’s the kid I used to be?
So what’s the cost?
I think I’m lost
Now slow it down so I can see

Perfect perfect faster faster
Perfect perfect faster faster
Perfect now no time for laughter
Perfect perfect faster faster

Someone turn it up now I'm delighted
Just decided that I just don’t give a ...
Bump that system I’m gonna listen
Grab my girl do a lot more kissin’
Sick of not smilin’ mile after mile and
Day by day what can I say
I think I broke and that’s no joke
But I’m finally laughin’ so I’m gonna cash in
Yep now it’s time ...
Gonna spend my money
Gettin’ out of line

Inside these walls
I take the calls
That make me wanna run
More and more
My body stalls
And falling down I look for fun

Down your lunches
Take your punches
Smile and then come back for more
Suits and handshakes
Email Saturdays
How little I knew what was in store

Now where’d I write
All of that down?
Check the pockets in my pants
Surprise! Wide open eyes
I realize
I never took no time to dance ...

Perfect perfect faster faster
Perfect perfect faster faster
Perfect now no time for laughter
Perfect perfect faster faster

Someone turn it up now I'm delighted
Just decided that I just don’t give a ...
Bump that system I’m gonna listen
Grab my girl do a lot more kissin’
Sick of not smilin’ mile after mile and
Day by day what can I say
I think I broke and that’s no joke
But I’m finally laughin’ so I’m gonna cash in
Yep now it’s time ...
Gonna spend my money
Gettin’ out of line

Perfect haircut, perfect bar
And perfect job and perfect car
Perfect jeans and perfect girl
And perfect scenes and perfect world

Perfect like you’re made of plaster
Perfect perfect faster faster
Perfect first picked off the shelf
Now I’m so fast can’t even catch myself

Someone turn it up now I'm delighted
Just decided that I just don’t give a ...
Bump that system I’m gonna listen
Grab my girl do a lot more kissin’
Sick of not smilin’ mile after mile and
Day by day what can I say
I think I broke and that’s no joke
But I’m finally laughin’ so I’m gonna cash in
Yep now it’s time ...
Gonna spend my money
Gettin’ out of line
