Edge of the Century (Styx)

Living on the edge of the century See the world in revolution Spinning faster all the time We're heading for the end of something Just about to step across that line Oh, can't you see? We're staring in the face of reality Oh, you and me We're living on the edge of the century Feel the way the earth is shaking Hear the rumble miles away Say goodby to Checkpoint Charlie Walls are falling every day Oh, can't you see? Every step we take we're making history Oh, you and me We're living on the edge of the century Feel the way the earth is shaking Fires and floods and hurricanes A voice cries out in revelation "Say hello to Y2K!" Oh, can't you see? We're jumpin on the ledge of uncertainty Oh, you and me We're living on the edge of the century Can't turn off the information Can't sit back in your easy chair Can't ignore a generation Better get ready cause we're almost there We're moving at the speed of life Into a brave new world where the strong will survive The dawn's gonna break and I'll meet you On the other side Can't stand still while the earth is turning Can't take cover til the coast is clear Can't play guitar while Rome is burning Look our now cause the future's here And we're moving at the speed of life Living on the edge On the edge of the century
