In the corner of a box marked lost and found
I find myself again
Lining the bottom of a wishing well
With other dreams that might have been
Flattened by the pressure of what's coming down
I'm relying on faith second hand

I used to be an average man
With bigger than average plans
Somehow I got lost along the way
And now I'm here
Don't you know that you could be the one
To set me free
I've waited all my life to be someone
Somebody could see
You can find me still in the corner of a box
Marked lost and found at the bottom of
A wishing well

Burdened by the weight of a wrecking ball
I'm defining my own sense of worth
I want to bathe my soul in the light
As religion finds me immersed
Destitution knows me by name
While the trick is to sit where you stand

I used to be an average man
With bigger than average plans
Somehow I got lost along the way
And now I'm here
Don't you know that you could be the one
To set me free
I've waited all my life to be someone
Somebody could see
You can find me still in the corner of a box
Marked lost and found at the bottom of
A wishing well

I'm caught shuddering by myself
Each wish in the shape of a coin
Legal tender for wishes thrown
As the water reflects the unknown
The tide rips through the surface of time
But I can't think of when it began

I used to be an average man
With bigger than average plans
Somehow I got lost along the way
And now I'm here
Don't you know that you could be the one
To set me free
I've waited all my life to be someone
Somebody could see
You can find me still in the corner of a box
Marked lost and found at the bottom of
A wishing well
