    What are you getting out of this
    Commitment, have many nice things
    But there's no time to take a rest
    And you're spent

    In the moment, you never seem to be
    That time will come

    Taken from those
    You should be here, you look on
    But you're not part of anything there
    The days and the years are passing
    Quite the man
    With your worldly possessions
    The crown upon you in all its glory

    Driven around
    Down these same ole roads
    You've known far too long
    Turning around's
    Not an option in front of you
    You're too far gone

    And all the signs are warning him
    A dead end street

    Taken from those
    You should be here, looking on
    But you're not part of anything there
    The days and the years have passed you
    Getting old
    With your worldly possessions
    The crown upon you in all its glory

    Not sure that you know
    Any more, what you feel right now
    To look back when you dreamed
    That you'd have everything you want
    It's so hard to just to get through

    So much of the time
    You were not here, you looked on
    But were not part of anything there
    The days and years have passed you
    Now you're old
    All your worldly possessions
    Crumbling
    Now all of your time is spent there
    They moved on
    And they're not part of anything here
    The days and the years have passed you
    And you're old
    With your worldly possessions
    All crumbling round you
    And all it's glory
