Can I ever see
What it is to me
That screams aloud through the hour
We all want to know
Can't we ever lay
Down for a rest once in a while
Impossible to say

It couldn't ever be this way
Who would want to hold out for this fate

We parade through the streets
On nothing but a whim
Just to get our minds off it all

A moment the insane
Would want to go away
Within the blink of an eye

I tried
I tried

It still went away

And I have seen
All I could imagine
Run away

Exhausted effort
Sleep it all away
To pass the time

No one at all
Could fathom every call
Of authorities
Climbing over the walls

In the cheerless cries
Of the overwhelmed lives
They have found a way
To finally escape
To finally live
To finally catch some rest

It couldn't ever be this way
Who would want to hold out for this fate
I've wandered around for days and days
Only to return to the start

The end
The end
The end
The cycle repeats now
