Closed minds and altered states
They keep my homesick thoughts in place
and I can't believe in anything I see
When I'm gone without a trace
They'll find a brand new field to graze
It's not as green, but you'll still prefer the taste

Walls of words are built between us
War of worlds, let's make this even
Do you think this incompletion
Makes a fitting end?

Maybe I'm wrong, but it's too late
to blame an absent mind on past mistakes
you can keep showing face but
We're all seeing double
This isn't the time, it's not the place
To leave a sour remark on hollow graves
You're showing a lack of grace, just save yourself the trouble

Cross lines that you create
There was a chance but it's too late
Are we all relieved that there's nothing to see?
Draw blanks and wipe the slate
I hope you find some empty space
Oh that web you've weaved, which part is spun for me?

Dial tones, broken receivers
I'm hung up on non-believers
Wires are crossed and I can't hear a
Single word you say

So you have the whole world in your hands
Why are you willing to let it go? to let it go?
(It's not what you wanted to be, I'm not who you need me to be)
