Bright lights and freight trains
Are rolling fast paced
Into the future or back in time
Way ahead or way behind
But you still creep along all alone
The longest fall has yet to come
You’re obsessing with a story
That's been haunting you for so long

You always wanted to tear down the world
To have something to rebuild
You always wanted to find
The darkest places to hide
But I wondered why?

You always knew that this day would come
Ready for it all along
I didn’t know what to say
Words and thoughts all astray
I was not able to take the pain away

A regret
That’s been sitting there for years
The guilt
That’s been manifesting fears
Bad teeth
Dead roots
A tooth pulled
A youth ruined
If I could
I would choose
To be the one
That could be of use
That could be of use

You always wanted to tear down the world
To have something to rebuild
You always wanted to find
The darkest places to hide
But I wondered why?

You always knew that this day would come
Ready for it all along
I didn’t know what to say
Words and thoughts all astray
I was not able to take the pain away
