about

“Speed of Sound” is a tale on small town living.. Feeling left out, but finding solace in car culture. The track originally appears on Scott’s solo record “Quick Fix Bandage.” Molly & Scott have been performing the song at shows and thought it would be fun to record a new version, giving it “the Wounded Bird treatment.” You can check out the original roots rocker version by following the below link. Compare/contrast, collect them both!

lyrics

brought down so they say
demonized to feel that way
hard times are here to stay
either way we're going to waste

it's high time to run this race
we'll see tonight the world awaits
won't be long our horses are pulling away
they'll pull away, they'll pull away

if you meet me at the next go around
to test these well-oiled machines
we'll cruise faster in the blink of an eye
with our headlights bearing down
traveling at the speed of sound

i'm behind and fortune fades
your taillights are disappearing
'cause tonight my focus
has shifted away from the race

sometimes you can't escape
between the lines are where most stay
there's more to life than constantly chasing to chase
why run the race, why run the race

if you meet me at the next go around
to test these well-oiled machines
we'll cruise faster in the blink of an eye
with our headlights bearing down
traveling at the speed of sound
