A dragon force
Compels us

And every running
Beat of our feet
Uphill bothways

Like a punk engine
Kicking the bass drum
And smashing the snares


Tapping into the roots
Of road and gravel

Softly sprinting
Why we have
Endurance for days
I’ll never know

Within the haste
We know there’s a
Meaning for the beating

Far away we know
The destination lies

Through the thick
We know the answers
To the “Why?”s

We’re just flesh
And metal soldiers
Working like androids

To do what we do
In whatever way

We think we’re so valiant
Sprinting to meet the day
Powered by the engines
In our chests

That kick dust
And shake rust
Off with each step

Glowing so hot they
Nearly melt and glow

Heat of friction
On the feet
And throttle open
So wide

There’s no stopping

Smashing through the
Mountains, see
Flesh and steel
Will smash the walls

And blast off
Through the ceiling

Grinding sound
Ground and pound

Operation is greenlit

Ready when you are
To rise
And meet the day
