Friday evening the blood still on my hands
To think that she would leave me now for that ungrateful man

Constant Motion Appears on: Systematic Chaos, Constant Motion
Lyrics:

Tunnel vision at blinding speed
Controlling my thoughts, obsessing me
Void of any uncertainty
Throughout my very soul

Lost illusions of my control
Resisting all hope of letting go
Racing impulse of dark desire
Drives me through the night

I try to shut it down
It leaves me in the dust
No matter what Iīve found
I can never get enough

Frantic actions of insanity
Impulsive laced profanity
Long for elusive serenity
Way out of my control

Traveling through both space and time
(Out of body, out of mind)
Out of control
My wheels in constant motion

Spinning round and round it goes
(I canīt let up, I canīt let go)
Canīt stop this flame from burning
Forever more
Into the night
Blistering

Focus here, focus there
Cannot see the light
(Falling down through the night)
Sprawling everywhere

Searching left, searching right
(Panic setting in, I can no longer fight)
When will this end?

Accelerate, dislocate
(Set to crash and burn, havenīt got time to waste)
Not planning to return

Aggravate, agitate
(When will I ever learn?)
Thereīs no way out of here

Nowhere to turn

Obsessive yearning
Compulsive burning
Still never learning
Insane random thoughts of neat disorder

Scattered wasteland surrounding me
Tattered memories of what used to be

Apocalyptic mind debris
Until we meet again
Uh!

Traveling through both space and time
(Out of body, out of mind)
Out of control
My wheels in constant motion

Spinning round and round it goes
(I canīt let up, I canīt let go)
Canīt stop this flame from burning
Forever more
Into the night
Blistering

Traveling through both space and time
(Out of body, out of mind)
Out of control
My wheels in constant motion

Spinning round and round it goes
(I canīt let up, I canīt let go)
Canīt stop this flame from burning
Canīt stop the wheels from turning

Traveling through both space and time
(You get yours, and I got mine)
Out of control
My wheels in constant motion

Spinning round and round it goes
(I canīt let up, I canīt let go)
Canīt stop this flame from burning
Forever more
Into the night
Blistering
