lyrics

Dust settles and records collect.
I've been going insane. I'll take you with me to the end and back again.
I think for myself. That much I can say. It's about enough.
Oh god, won't you please just let me off.
I will stay here and I will watch.
I'll be the one you forgot.
Come along there is no time for questions.
You always act so brave until we're face to face.
I say that we turn the other page.
I wish you would see that I fill your need and there is nothing left to say.
Like you were born afraid.
Like you were born afraid of living.
If hanging on means holding out then I am not waiting on you.
Not when there's so many sights to see.
I will stay here and I will watch. I'll be the one you forgot.
Dust settles and records collect. I'll be the one you forget.
Come along there is no time for questions.
You always act so brave until we're face to face.
I say that we turn the other page.
I wish you would see that I fill your need and there is nothing left to say.
Like you were born afraid.
Like you were born afraid of living.
Wake or be woke.
Bring your torches and shotguns. I live just down the road.
I will not be moved. I will not be slowed.
Wake or be woke.
I have been growing old in the house I grew up in.
I don't know where I'm going but I know where I've been.
I am a traveler just passing by.
I am out of the question and you're not telling why I'm only passing time.
Only passing time.
I say that we turn the other page.
