You've cut yourself from existance
for the sake of tradition
just to be alone
but all you found was a frown
and that acting the clown
can turn your thoughts to stone
so you abandon your dreams
for a city of screams and a necktie
and you sit and you think
of the tears you would shed if you let yourself cry
I bet you never thought it would be like this

Yet you're saved by the graves
of old men whose names play on the jukebox
and when you see records turning
'round people and sounds
you want to play your part
so you sing lonesome songs
of things that're long gone
you're kissing them goodbye
and with your soul 'neath your feet
you're hitting the streets in search of a collective sigh
I'll bet you never thought it would be like this

yeah, we're all just a start
a small part of centuries moving on
so you grab something good
and hold on 'cause the world's gone wrong
and you can't go back home
cause you're restless and scared with something to prove
that nothing should be left but burial grounds
with nothing to gain and nothing to lose
bet you never thought it would be like this
