lyrics

Well I've taken that train, I've ridden that line
Far too many times to count in my mind.
And I've passed those empty stations
Now left out there in the cold.

And I've passed those places they couldn't afford
To hold up anymore.
And I'll miss those early morning ghosts
Who ain't asked to go there anymore.

So they turn to drinking and hoping to die,
Hoping god forgives them when they finally arrive.
But there ain't nothing forgiving bout living nine to five,
Don't take a man who's seen the world to know it is a lie.

Cause you know someday we're gonna die.
Don't make me wanna leave before that day arrives.
And I'm worried when I go
Won't be nothing of this world for me to leave behind.

For my daughter and my son,
But a bullet in a broken gun.

While the darkest hearts that turn the wheel turn down the setting sun.
With the warm and depthless ocean now filling up with blood.
We'll set fire to this world and we'll never blink an eye
Just to leave our TVs on, run our cars another mile.

So we'll build another shopping mall, another parking lot
Before this city overflows, then fill another one.
And we'll spend our lives with strangers just to die alone,
Raise a child without a heart in a home without a home.

Cause you know sometime we're gonna die.
Don't make me wanna leave before that day arrives.
And I'm worried when I go
Won't be nothing of this world for me to leave behind.

For my daughter and my son,
But a bullet in a broken gun.
But the shadow of a man on the run.

For you know that we've been here before and you know we'll come again.
Return to where it all began just to find it is the end.
And we'll hang our hearts and hang our minds come the end of the day.
And we'll grow too tired to really care when the limelight falls away.

Cause you know we're gonna die someday.
Don't make me wanna leave before that day comes my way.
And I'm worried when I go
Won't be nothing of this world for me to leave in my wake.

For my daughter and my son.
But a bullet in a broken gun.
But the shadow of a man on the run.
With the feeling in their hearts
That there's nothing can be done.
