Scott Matthews - Speeding Slowly lyrics

Will you shut up,
I've got something to say,
But you just stand there laughing
Right in my face.
Don't waste my time,
And I won't waste yours,
But when you're eyes-deep slurring
You won't know whether to call,
'Cause you never gave much thought to me at all.

You're sleeping on a subway train
Speeding slowly away.
Your destination never came
Now there's nothing to pay.
A different side of your brain is speeding slowly away.

I've seen your face,
I know you're not for real.
Who'd have thought you'd be caught
Under the wheels?
You've been stubbed out,
Like, a cigarette.
You're in the gutter fluttering,
Spat out from the mouth
Of old barrels' dregs, no-one likes a bitter taste.

You're sleeping on a subway train
Speeding slowly away.
Your destination never came
Now there's nothing to pay.
A different side of your brain is speeding slowly away,
Slowly away.

You've woken on a derailed train,
Speeding slowly away.
Handcuffed to your bitter end,
There's always someone to pay,
Always turns out that way,
Speeding slowly away,
Slowly away,
Speeding slowly away,
Slowly away.
