Rush - Cut to the chase

It is the fire that lights itself
But it burns with a restless flame
The arrow on a moving target
The archer must be sure of his aim.

It is the engine that drives itself
But it chooses the uphill climb
A bearing on magnetic north
Growing farther away all the time.

Can't stop moving
Can't stop moving
Can't stop.

You may be right, It's all a waste of time
I guess that's just a chance I'm prepared to take
A danger I'm prepared to face
Cut to the chase.

It is the rocket that ignites itself
And launches it's way to the stars
Ambition is the fire
A driver on a busy freeway
Racing the oblivious cars
Action is the fire.

It's the motor of the western world
Spinning off to every extreme
Pure as a lovers desire
Evil as a murderers dream.


Can't stop moving
Can't stop moving
Can't stop.

You may be right, It's all a waste of time
I guess that's just a chance I'm prepared to take
A danger I'm prepared to face
Cut to the chase.

Young enough not to care too much
About the way things used to be
I'm young enough to remember the future
The past has no claim on me.

I'm old enough not to care too much
About what you think of me
But I'm young enough too remember the future
The way things ought to be.

Cut, Cut, Cut
Cut to the chase

You may be right, It's all a waste of time
I guess that's just a chance I'm prepared to take
A danger I'm prepared to face
Cut to the chase
Just a danger I'm prepared to face
Cut to the chase.
