Lyrics:
A man lives in the city
                                                     Surrounded by machines
                                                     They take away his pity
                                                   And give him what he dreams
                                                     A stream of information
                                                     On a green letter screen
                                               Makes him feel in touch with the world
                                                    And sure of what it means

                                                           Chorus:
                                             At the speed of light you're in endless night
                                            At the speed of sound you don't see the ground
                                            And in your sports car with the windows down
                                              And the radio on and you don't stop talking
                                                    Thanks, I'll keep walking
                                                  I'm doing things in my own way
                                                 Well I'm doing things as I please
                                              And then everything else goes its own way
                                                      At the speed of life

                                                      A man lives in the city
                                                     Distracted by the news
                                               From sitting down with the ones he loves
                                                     Or taking time to choose
                                                    And what of conversation?
                                                  And what is left when he dies?
                                                 Is there a diary of an honest man
                                                    To stand against the lies?

                                                        Repeat Chorus

                                                 I'm doing things for their own sake
                                                  A picture on a screen won't do
                                                  I need to feel and touch it too
                                                        Do what I feel

                                                 I'm doing things for their own sake
                                               I gotta find that essential, deep emotion
                                               Get unhooked from this low commotion
                                                       And do what I feel
                                                  I'm doing things in my own way

                                                  I'm doing things in my own way
                                                 Well I'm doing things as I please
                                              And then everything else goes its own way
                                                      At the speed of life

                                                     This is the speed of life
