Speed Of Sound

How long before I get in
Before it starts before I begin?
How long before you decide
Before I know what it feels like?
Where to, where do I go?
If you never try then you'll never know
How long do I have to climb
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

Look up, I look up at night
Planets are moving at the speed of light 
Climb up, up in the trees
Every chance that you get is a chance you seize
How long am I gonna stand 
With my head stuck under the sand?
I'll start before I can stop
Or before i see things the right way up

All that noise and all that sound
All those places i got found
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand

Ideas that you'll never find
All the inventors could never design
The buildings that you put up
Japan and China all lit up
A sign that I couldn't read
Or a light that I couldn't see
Some things you have to believe
Others are puzzles puzzling me 

All that noise and all that sound
All those places I got found
And birds go flying at the speed of sound 
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand
Ah when you see it then you'll understand

All those signs I knew what they meant 
Some things you can't invent
Some get made and some get sent, ooh ooh
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground 
If you could see it then you'd understand
Oh when you see it then you'll understand
