lyrics

Homeward bound never felt so down and out to me, and i'm trying to fight my apathy, but i'm headed somewhere i don't want to be when the sun comes up. i'm pulling figure eights around the highways of my home state. a to b will torment me from the lack of scenery.

i'm staying out way past dark in hopes of finding the other part to this harmony everyone calls home.

so if you hear me before i stop, i'll be driving all night to take one last shot. these second chances will be the death of me. we're all gods or we're all frauds, stitched together but cut from the same cloth. who can say that's wrong?

you took me down past this unrequited melody and i learned that life is more than black and white, shaded with hues of brown. play the victim if you think you know the part so well, keep on searching but you'll never find a sense of self. no spine, no way to change your mind. but at least i tried.

so if you hear me, i'm feeling like a vulture standing on a cliffside. if you hear me, raise your fists and say your goodbyes. and if you hear me, i would have died for you to try. oh, i would have died. if you hear me, in the world outside, the world outside...
