How to escape a familiar theme?
An idea you’re at home in.
If you’re not careful it could crush you, like a straitjacket. I wanna know,
How to break new ground, like a long distance runner.
My face is distorted, into a grimace, he wears a half smile.
That you hate him for, he wears a half smile, that you hate him for.

We had a strong foundation, but could not pass the test.
And a lack of blame is not our problem.
It’s been passed around from mouth to mouth like rumors in a broken town.
When you watched it rise and fall, you’d forgotten that…

What you had, is never coming back,
What you had, is never coming back.

I need a window to see out of, I need some time so I can count down.
To the day that I could tell you, that I know just where I’m going.

I tried to drink from the well, but its been dried up,
I tried to live off my hands but they’ve been tied up.
People sick with ambition, hunting a reputation,
To advance their position, they would try anything.
If their boots on your neck you should shake fast,
Glue your eyes to the floor push a fake laugh.

What you had, is never coming back,
What you had is never coming back.
I need a window to see out of, I need some time so I can count down.
To the day that I could tell you,
That I know just where I’m going.

What you had is never coming back,
(Looking back to a simple time)
What you had is never coming back.
(Familiar faces you can recognize)
I need a window to see out of, I need some time so I can count down.
To the day that I could tell you, that I know just where I’m going.
Looking back to a simpler time, familiar faces you can recognize.
Looking back to a simpler time, familiar faces you can recognize.
