Behind my eyes I keep my truth from you. No one enters this secret place, the barrier only I embrace. Time is fleeing now they say, Take time to look inside and face, the change.
Dig down deep to find the man I thought I was. A dog on a treadmill panting, the master pulls the leash, laughing. Now I can't remember why I needed to run, needed to try so hard.
One more time around is all I ask for now, a star to seek by, wind to take me home again.
"Work hard in life boy, there's paradise in the end." Year after year we struggle to gain the happiness our parents never claimed. They told us all we had to do was do what we're told, buy what was sold, "Invest in gold, and never get old."
One more time around is all I ask for now, a star to steer by, wind to take me home again.
