"Halfway There" as written by and Chris J Cornell....
I woke up with my feet nailed down
And my head moving the speed of sound
Had a dream I was caught in a maze
And I couldn't find my way back out

Some were born to move mountains around
And some to rot away in jail
I can admit that when I am scratching
Everything can go to hell

And how far is halfway there?
I didn't see you on the trail now
We've almost become good enough
Should the good life be so hard?
Is that what our dreams have become?

Sometimes, when you're shooting an arrow
It can fly across the sky so proud
Well I would go all the way to the sun
If I didn't have to come back down

And how far is halfway there?
I didn't see you on the trail now
We've almost become good enough
Should the good life be so hard?
Is that what our dreams have become?

Have become
Yeah

If you got a car and somewhere to sleep
Someone who loves you and something to eat
I would say you're doing better than most
But maybe not as well as some

And how far is halfway there?
I didn't see you on the trail now
We've almost become good enough
Should a good life be so hard won?
Is that what our dreams have become?

Is that what our dreams have become?
