"Closer To Nowhere" as written by and Jen K. Foster....
Do you know who you are?
Do you ever think about it?
If you were told it`s a place
Would you drive until you found it?

Or would you turn down a street
That you know would lead to where you were before?
You call it home, but are you really sure
That`s your home?

Do you know what you want?
Have you ever reconsidered
What a trip we are on
And it`s the only ride we`re given?

If you could fly, would you try?
Would your feet stay firmly planted on the ground?
Can you explain why the only place you go
Is to waste?

Now you go to work and you work all day
You smoke and bitch on your coffee break
You tell some jokes to kill that time
Til the boss comes back and at the stroke of 5
You hit those bars, you have some drinks
You drown in all your long lost dreams
Oh no, you`re closer to nowhere

Do you know who you love?
Can you say those words with feeling?
Or when you look in those eyes
Is there someone else you`re seeing?

Do you dream of a day
You could take the love without running away?
What is it now? Do you need a little space?
Or are you wanting out?

Now you go to work and you work all day
You smoke and bitch on your coffee break
You grab that phone, rehearse those lines
Then you call home sayin` you gotta work tonight
You hit those bars, you buy some drinks
For the first one who looks good and thinks you`re cool
You`re closer to nowhere...

You fake it so well
Nobody can tell
You buy what they sell
You`re going places....

Now you go to work and you work all day
You smoke and bitch on your coffee break
You share your plans and you swear you`ll quit
Maybe next year or the year after it
You hit those bars, you have some drinks
You take those pills, you go to sleep
You wake up someday all alone
You realize another year is gone
You`re closer to nowhere

And all these signs will be your guides
But you must pay attention
And all the lights that line the sides
Are beautiful, don`t miss them...

You`re closer to nowhere...
