The Faster The Treadmill...

"The Faster The Treadmill…" is the second track on both the original release and current versions of I Fight Dragons' debut EP Cool Is Just A Number, though it was moved to the third track slot in 2010's Atlantic Records re-release. It is a fan-favorite track and has become a staple of the band's live sets, appearing in all shows they've done with the exception of the entirety of the 2014 Vans Warped Tour.

Lyrics
Sun goes down, sun comes up
Days can drown in a plastic cup in this town
In this town

Don't know how, don't know when
Something came but it left again
And I'm down
On this town

'Cause no matter what I see
People love to disagree

Every time I say what I wanna be
Someone says that's not how it's gonna be
Come on baby, quit your dreaming
Grab your things, the train is leaving

Time to pick that somewhere you wanna go
Get there quick or drown in the undertow
Come on baby, time is wasting
Choose a wheel and get to racing

Sun goes up and down again
Hard to stop feeling broken in
And worn down
By this town

All the same, You find me here
Placing blame and escaping fear
And self doubt
In this town

But no matter where I go
People love to tell me "No"

Every time I say what I wanna be
Someone says that's not how it's gonna be
Come on baby, Qquit your dreaming
Grab your things, the train is leaving

Time to pick that somewhere you wanna go
Get there quick or drown in the undertow
Come on baby, time is wasting
Choose a wheel and get to racing

Every time I say what I wanna be
Someone says that's not how it's gonna be
Come on baby quit your dreaming
grab your things the train is leaving

If you feel like nobody understands
You just smile and pray that they clap their hands
Come on baby, drown your sorrow
Work today and live tomorrow

Time to pick that somewhere you wanna go
Get there quick or drown in the undertow
Come on baby, time is wasting
Choose a wheel and get to racing
