Here I am again on the 38th floor
The view is good, but my mind is out the door
Staring at a screen all day, there's no further I can sink
Can't help but think I've somehow flushed my life away
I've flushed it away!
Every day the same, every meeting a corporate game
I wouldn't be surprised if my boss doesn't know my name
I don't know myself, I can't stand who I've become
Coerced by fear, pressure and strain forced my career

Get me out of here, take me to a place where I can see
something different than what's in front of me
Silence my fear that I'm not where I should be
That the door that was closed...it was closed by me

If only I had another chance to go back to the point
where I was scared to take the risk, so I abandoned what I love
If only I had another shot to go back where my soul
was bought and sold by a poor decision, my "now" wouldn't need revision
And every day I get so bored, nothing seems to change
The doubt about the choice I made rings like thunder in the rain

I'm just a grain of sand on an endless beach,
another face in the crowd
I could have held the playing hand that took me out of the mundane's reach
and walked the path my dreams allowed
(x2)
Instead I've got another meeting
Gotta keep the company strong
Gotta keep the company strong
The boss has asked for overtime
He'll make sure the day drags on
He'll make sure the day drags on

What have I done? Where have I gone?
Everything and everywhere I knew was wrong
What have I seen? Where are my dreams?
Nothing and nowhere but a computer screen
(x4)

Here I am again on the 38th floor
The view is good as I'm walking out the door
One choice that cost so much made life unrecognizable,
but I have another chance to make my goal realizable
I can't undo what's been done,
but I have to try to fix what's wrong
To let my dreams be my guide
They now refuse to be denied
I may not find the way back out
of the mess I've made, but I'm about
to swallow pride, 'cause I'm walking out!
The time is now to change my life!
