so... you've given it all you can and your life is in the garbage can and you say you're tired and dry cuz your mind won't let you cry so you hang up what is left inside and you want to kiss it all goodbye you're lost in space, you're swirling ever higher you're lost on your own, you're too far from home you're no one's friend, you gave it your best try yeah! you're stuck in the drone, of being alone. you turn to light, but all you get is darkness your head turns to stone, your numbness has grown you're stuck inside your little world of rejects the good world unknown, you're stuck in the drone.

    General CommentGod I hate that. Into the Unknown was such a good CD. This and Chasing the Wild Goose are my favorite songs from it. It's a damn shame.

    General CommentThis song is about someone who has tried everything he or she can do to improve his or her life, but nothing has worked. Greg could be writing about himself.

    General CommentI would call this "The promises of Punk". This is what lies ahead of people who take these guy's seriously unless your living as a rich Punk Icon, who is nothing more than a spoiled brat who is still mad at the world. Maybe the "humanist Atheist" life style is a lie? Something to think about.
