An inspirational track about never giving up on your dreams, up tempo with a great hard driving beat, vocal harmony and layers of exquisite guitars.


A little light in the darkness.
Wide awake I'm troubled.
Morning has come too fast.
I used to sleep better,
But anymore its just a few short hours.

But am I so insane,
Never sleep again.
Why can't I stop the time from moving.
Thinking about this or that,
Dunno where my mind is at.
Whats the difference,
Just a few more minutes.

A few more minutes

Well I'm drowning in my fate.
Thinking of all the ways that I,
Could have done things right.
But what's the point anymore,
Thinking in those old ways Now.
I'm moving toward the light.

But isn't it so mundane,
When we're spinning 'round the drain.
Why can't I stop my mind from racing.
Good night its over now.
The voices don't seem so loud.
When I just concentrate on nothing.

On nothing.

Fast and Slow,
Into the unknown now.
It makes no difference to me.
'Cause I keep holding on to,
The simple fact that no one can,
Take away your dreams.

Fast and Slow
