You think you know me but

Nobody really does

Wish I could stay a while

But I’m already gone

I’m already gone

Is it an addiction, this need to give up

Everyone likes fiction,

I like to run

I’m already gone

And I can’t stop

I can’t stop moving on

I don’t want much; just everything I touch

Turns to black and I need to throw it out

What’s going wrong,

What’s going wrong is I’m already gone

I see the warning lights

Before we’ve even crossed the line

You say it’s been a great night

I don’t believe you read the signs

don’t believe you read the signs

Let’s take an intermission

While I find my way back

Don’t want any friction

Don’t you understand?

I’m already gone

And I can’t stop

I can’t stop moving on

I don’t want much; just everything I touch

Turns to black and I need to throw it out

What’s going wrong,

What’s going wrong is I’m already…

I just want to hold,

I just want to wait,

I wish I knew myself better,

How could you know me?

I don’t want to make,

I don’t want to make trouble but it seems to run in my blood

I’m already gone

And I can’t stop

I can’t stop moving on

I don’t want much; just everything I touch

Turns to black and I need to throw it out

What’s going wrong,

What’s going wrong is I’m already gone

I can’t stop

I’m already gone

I can’t stop

Just everything I touch turns to black

And I need to throw it out

What’s going wrong is I’m already gone

 

Oh they’ve got me stuck on this one
Come on in if you want to see me gone
Wish I could reason with you love,
But I can’t see straight
We’ll both be afraid

No they wont have heard this one before
Goes so much against what we’ve been taught
And I know I’ll always be the one
Who doesn’t understand,
Got to make a stand

 

We’ll go round in the shade
They’ll cover up our eyes
Till we all see the same
And the colours fade to white,

Oh they’ve got us all behaving well
Bound up on the outside so no one can tell
And I know I’m not the only one
Who thinks it’s all too strange
Who knows we’re not to blame

We’ll do everything they say
Too bottled up with pride
To tear down what they’ve made
Say I’m not on this side

Built up round the people who have won
Thinking that there’s nothing to be done
And I’ll go round and around with everyone
Saying it is never them
And then I’ll start again

We’ll go round in the shade
They’ll cover up our eyes
Till we all see the same
And the colours fade to white,
and we’re wasting time
Running to no place

You know you’re just another one
Making it up as you go along
Trying to fool everybody that you are meeting

You feel the weight of the words you speak
And most of them you don’t really mean
And you wonder how long it will take for you to mean anything

The times we have wasted
Are the days we have tasted
And I don’t know and I don’t know
I just don’t know I just don’t know
You feel the ache of all your ideals
you’ve got to earn it to make it real
but you’re lying if you say you know how toearn anything

You’re scanning all the nearby roads
making do with your broken bow
trying tosow what’s not been sowed and make a change

You run around at such a speed
don’t think our eyes know how to really see
So busy searching that we’re blind to where we’re heading

Attach yourself to things you collect
and you offer them all way too much respect
And they’ll distract you from what you should be doing

The times we have wasted
Are the days we have tasted
And I don’t know and I don’t know
I just don’t know I just don’t know

We got nothing that we can hide
but we got some things we like to cover with lies

You’re saying all these things so well
But you forget your eyes say something else
And you hope nobody reads what you’re really thinking

I don’t even see it all
but I know there’s something wrong
When the only things I see are as bad as this

I lose something I can’t replace
Thinking I’ve been picked on again
When all those things I choose to avoid seeing
Are raging on, the unlucky ones

And you’re just staring at the screens
Holding on to some hope that they’ll be free
Even when you lose, you’re lucky

I think it may be fair to say
That where we are will never be safe
But as long as they keep turning their heads
They have won, and they’re the lucky ones

And they’ll just stare at the mess they’ve made
Without a care or the time to make a change
But they have lost, they have lost

I hurt myself on the way down the stairs
I trip up on the sidewalk every now and then
And I think I’m being punished in some way
Asking, why are you ruining my day?
And I am so ashamed that I don’t say

I am one of the lucky ones

I am one of the lucky ones

I can sit and not say a thing
I can try and pretend I know what to be
I can walk down the street for others to see
I can dress myself up for strangers to read
But please don’t believe its all me

I can make it all up and theyd never tell
I can say what Im doing as if I’m doing it well
I can choose not to say I’m as lost as I’ll ever be
Stuck on the dark side but I can still be funny
But please don’t believe its all me

We try to make ourselves up for too long
With too many times that we do what we’re told
And I wish I could tell what you all might think
Just please don’t believe its all me

But if I could go back I still wouldn’t make it right
So I guess I might as well try to just live this life
We pose how we think we should look to the onlookers
Make them think that they know everything there is
But please don’t believe that is real

I can try to pretend that I’m never afraid
While I’m still tryna learn how to play this game
And I know what you’re thinking but I know when I’m wrong
I wonder what they will believe when we’re gone

If they’re falling then I’m missing where they land,
The space between us grows and leaves me trapped
the walls are high and the ground is low,
I don’t know which way is wrong

So here I am
thinking things you’ll never hear
and the words can’t ever represent all it is I fear
and soon, I’ll be at a loss
of days like these

I try to catch the words before they melt,
they’re swimming round the line
but can’t be held
The weight of all that should be said,
and must be said quite soon
pulls me down
til’ I can’t say anything at all
So here I am
thinking things you’ll never hear
and the words can’t ever represent all it is I fear
and soon, I’ll be at a loss
of days like these

And here we all are
thinking thing’s we’ll never share
and the race is on
leaving us all running scared
And I guess I’ll have to wait a couple more years
When there wont be so many days like these

No I don’t think I can change
but I can’t make the same mistake again
nothing’s gonna save us,
I can’t seem to shake that off

So I shut myself inside,
watching others walking by
thinking I would like to be a bit more like you

And my route is getting longer
and darker every day
I’m just stuck on the wrong side of the road

How can they think less than twice,
how can they know any more than I,
guess I’m running round in circles
trying to find the straight line

Now my goal has altered shape
and it seems much too far away
and the crowds all seem to know
where they’re heading to

And my route is getting longer,
and darker every day
I’m just stuck on the wrong side of the road

And they’re back now,
those wasted hours
to haunt us and tell us
that we’ve aged too fast
And the golden rule is getting clearer now,
but not for everyone; their lives have just begun

I guess you might well stare at me
I guess you could be thinking the same things
But they’re making us stay quiet
they’re making us pretend we know it all

So I locked myself away
can’t figure out how to escape
and the doors won’t seem to open by themselves
still my route is getting longer
and darker every day

I’ve got the wrong stuff on my mind
And I can’t seem to find the time
I’m just stuck on the wrong side of the road
