History repeats itself
In the patterns in the stone
We close our eyes, and fumbling,
We listen, or we don't

The anchorman is babbling
The weatherman's a liar
The sports report's a waste of time
For the bored and the tired

    And the past is all we talk about
    Cuz it's all we've ever known

    I won't go back to the simple life
    In the comfort of the womb
    I'm finding a new road home

If I'm late for my own funeral
Don't let me hold you up
Just tell them I've got other plans
I've got work to do

    I won't go back to the simple life
    The past is gone
    I won't go back to the simple life
    I'm moving on
