Vacant nights, synthetic lights
Back where it started, no place left to go this time
The discount wine has clouded my mind
So I'll just have one more drink - and spill more ink
Let's raise a glass to burning bridges
Set's the same, the players change
So bundle up kid, now you can't go home

Salad days - box 'em up and let it pour
Step back, then light a match and close the door
I guess that's just River City for you

Step outside, watch cars collide
Just keep on moving all in the past
Stop lights dark in Highland Park
I take a right make footprints in new snow
Next year the skies look clear
An optimist like January
One weak smile, I've walked for miles
I check the time, turn, inhale deep, and go

Take in the moonlight, reflecting on strange times
As seen through famine-stricken eyes
Just try to walk on
