Goin' Nowhere Fast

This song is by Beck and appears on the album Banjo Story (1988).

All the things they said would happen to you
Don't ya know they're all comin true
Goin' nowhere fast

Nothing's strange as when it seems
You're living out all your worst possible dreams
Goin' nowhere fast

Bad times, worse times
All the times in between
I stumble in my shadow, tangle in the trees
Goin' nowhere fast

I learn my lesson and I learn it again
I heard what they said, "Live fast and die stupid"
Goin' nowhere fast

My compass is spinnin' like a gamblin' wheel
It takes a hideous misfortune for to tell how I feel
Goin' nowhere fast

I threw it all away like shoes into the street
These terrible things will tear me in three
Goin' nowhere fast

I don't care what time will tell
Just tell me if I might as well be halfway to hell
Goin' nowhere fast

I'm sick through my skin with silence and doom
I break my back, I cry on the moon
Goin' nowhere fast
Goin' nowhere fast
