lyrics

you don't know where you've been
you don't know where you're going
you try to speed around but
end up at the same red light

at work you're trapped in a cage
at home you're trapped in your bed
just wondering where the hell your life has gone
you've had it before

you are just trying to find direction
in a world that's only round
a place above is your perception
so please don't ever go back down

you try to sleep but your brain
is washed with white just the same
as the blank cubicle walls
where you spend your endless days

they say work hard and you'll see
success and maybe you'll be
the one on top smoking cigars
and calling all of the shots

and as you blurt out your confession
to the world that's all around
you start to rise above the ashes
and know you'll never go back down

and at the end of your procession
the world will sing your name around
what you've done's all our possession

our lives are green they once were brown
your dream keeps our world spinning round
I know you'll never go back down
no please don't ever go back down
