lyrics

Your mind, it works in terrible ways
You keep building up bridges and lighting up matches
And blowing it all away
Well soon you'll be starving
It's not a game anymore
You knew you lost
You knew the cost
Still you joined in on the war

On the road from rags to riches
You were stuck at every toll
Your conscience was stranded
Your hands were tied
It was time for something bold
Time to open your eyes
It's painful sometimes
You've got nothing to lose
But if you're not confused
You don't know what's going on

But if you come back down
I'll meet you in the middle
Knowing your way shouldn't have to be a riddle
"It's all the same," she said
"You see? The road I'm on, it carries me."
But don't get lost, girl
Spinning your tires
Candle's burned down
But the day is getting brighter
"It's all the same," she said
"You see? The world is full of liars and thieves.
It's all the same."

And suddenly your head is spinning
But you cannot make a sound
You keep ghosts for companions
And haunt your own mansion
But there's still no one around

On a corner in some dark city
Under a street light, in the cold
There a man stood shouting
And his voice was heard all down the road
He was locked into position
As there echoed sound of sweet submission
He threw up his hands
Then he started to dance
And he found his way back home

But if you come back down
I'll meet you in the middle
Knowing your way shouldn't have to be a riddle
"It's all the same," she said
"You see? The road I'm on, it carries me."
But don't get lost, girl
Spinning your tires
Candle's burned down
But the day is getting brighter
"It's all the same," she said
"You see? The world is full of liars and thieves.
It's all the same."
