This road I walk is a friend I can talk to
It hears me out when I’m tired and down
I travel on with the hopes of redeeming
A lonesome life in this old ghost town

I see my friends and I wonder what they’re feeling
It makes me sad when they stand so alone
I feel their pain and it seems to be revealing
A tall, tall wall that separates us all
And I can’t climb until I take the fall

I’ve crossed that bridge that I built before I burned it
I’ve set on fire all the things that I believe
I’ve stood on the edge of my death but I’m learning
That this whole world is still a friend to me
And I can see that I can hardly breathe

I cry sometimes when I try to make a living
I work all day and they take away my pay
It gets so hard when it seems that I am giving
My life away just to take what I can’t keep
So wake me up or kill me in my sleep
