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

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


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
