Well it’s only a matter of time
It’s only a matter of time
Try as you might,
We’ll all look the same
At the end of the line
You keep on pushing away
You keep on pushing away
You’re holding so tight
To the hope that you might
Be free someday

When you pull into the station
There is no one there to greet you
The same old situation
Though you struggle for life
In the end it defeats you

When you’re reaching for something to trust
You're reaching for something to trust
Well, you’re told to believe
And it's hard to conceive
But you feel that you must
So you start turning everything off
You start turning everything off
You forget who you are
As your heart gets hard
And your guts go soft

It’s a strange investigation
To the roots of all you’ve been through
The same old situation
Though you struggle for life
In the end it defeats you

Will it all have to happen to me?
Will it all have to happen to me?
The end isn’t clear
Will I always be here
In the things I have seen?
The lights won’t ever come on
The lights won’t ever come on
Everyone knows the way
That it goes in the place
That you’ve gone

You feel that separation
Will put a stop to all you’ve seen to
The same old situation
Though you struggle for life
In the end it defeats you
