I couldn't sleep,
so I walked along the centerlines of the streets
got a coffee and a donut
'cause time passes faster when i eat
tried to sort through all my thoughts
and keep my hands away from frostbite
I guess the quiet gets to me once in awhile
on those black november nights.

Well I walked through Wal-Mart in a daze
on a crowded Sunday afternoon
and suddenly I felt the weight
of what I was walking through
and for one frozen moment
I knew that nothing there could cure this quiet ache
that 'all you can eat' can't fill,
the emptiness the shelves can't restrain.

I headed home to sleep
and locked the doors on things i didn't understand
still, sometimes I see the glimmers
of a world that stretches out from where i stand
but it's cold beyond my borders,
so i pack my thoughts in boxes unread
I don't watch the stars much these days,
I just stare straight ahead.

I am the center of the world
