Everyone around me is sighing, too broken to stand back up
Every time I think to go out walking, I always lock myself up
And my head weighs a fuckin' ton, almost as much as my heart
They drag me down whenever I'm in town, I could do it if you told me where to start
I desperately relit some old cigarette, but sadly my mind is still runnin'
Why'd I put myself here? I don't know. I wanna go again but I got nothing.
These lows and these highs, keep on twistin my mind.
I'd leave em all behind if I didn't love em.
Back to where I started, just for a quick stop in.
Thanks again, but you know, I gotta go.
So we walked back into the unknown
Our fingers laced so tightly
Frightened of the fast approaching cold
Tired of this aimlessness game
What happened to my home?
And where did all my money go?
Which friends are real?
They all just seem so cordial
Hey boss-man, gimme back my soul
