Lyrics

I spent so long just wandering
For years I was adrift
Directionless and wayward lost
Like a swallow on a cliff

But slowly I found purpose
And my life became more clear
I found my destination
But now, where to go from here?

Cuz I'm already there, I'm already everywhere

    I've got a wife, two kids and a picket fence
    Everything was hazy, now it's making sense
    Alright, I made it, so now what?

I paid my dues in factories
I worked until I bled
The suffering made me stronger
So I pushed to get ahead

Now I'm perched above the factory floor
Looking down at my friends below
In my comfy car I drive away
But there's nowhere left to go

	[chorus]

No one ever told me
That when the race is done
The finish line's behind you
And you have lost, or you have won

The crowd goes home and you're still standing
On that empty track
The lights are off, the crowd is gone
And there's no going back

        [chorus]

Really beautiful.

haha - seems like you've stuck with the new years resolution past February - hope you continue :)

This one may be my favorite of the album. Reminiscent of Jonathan Coulton's "Shop Vac". I love songs that can be celebratory and yet full of despair at the same time.

The coolest song I ever heard, pal. History of my life.

You're the best.

Thanks a million, Marcio! That means a lot.
