Like A Rocket

It's got the power to save your day
And you want it right away
'Cause you won't get any fun
Until the working week is done
But work's a state of mind
Infliltrates your leisure time
Until the boundaries blend
And as you count down to the end

A nanosecond is simply too long
In this world where the good stuff's soon gone
Have you got time to waste?

Goes like a rocket
Into cyberspace
Goes like a rocket
Have you got time to waste?

And the urge to quit is strong
But the novelty lingers on
And you won't get any rest
Until you're fastest, first and best

What if you were suddenly braking?
Standing still instead of overtaking?
Have you got time to waste?
                  
Goes like a rocket
Into cyberspace
Goes like a rocket
This inhuman race
                  
Tomorrow will break your heart
The beauty's over before it starts
You won't see your mistakes
Until the after-image fades

I wouldn't give you anything for it
Despite the bells and the whistles on it
But if you've got money to waste

Goes like a rocket
Into cyberspace
Goes like a rocket
If you've got money to waste

Goes like a rocket
Have you got time to waste?
