Ultravox - Maximum Acceleration Lyrics

I thought you knew me by now
Let the lights go on roaring
Someone's hand on my shoulder
Then whip past the turning point
There's time for the taking

[Chorus]
Maximum acceleration
Maximum acceleration
Maximum acceleration

A face that goes slowly
A signal close by me
The landscapes are changing
And some of us flipped a coin
And shimmered away

[Chorus]

You really were aching
It's turning to twilight
Moving over and under
Then a couple of figures
Shook their heads of the high lines

[Chorus]
