Your wandering eyes keep staring out
At the distance you have found
You pretend that it won't ever work
And leave me here to drown
Alone in time, in space again
And my weapon understands
I'm going home, back home again
Don't try to pry this from my hand

I can't feel the same happiness
That everyone else has claimed
And every time I try to love
Every time, I feel the pain
I've seen the world, I've watched the news
You've turned to me, I've turned to you
And now there's nowhere left to go
What else can I do?

The damage done to this bridge I've crossed
Was not a choice of mine
The detour signs, and dead end streets
Are like a maze to pass the time
I've set my goals, and changed my ways
And I do this every day
Consistance is my middle name
But names can always be changed

I can't feel the same happiness
That everyone else has claimed
And every time I try to love
Every time, I feel the pain
I've seen the world, I've watched the news
You've turned to me, I've turned to you
And now there's nowhere left to go
What else can I do?
