  • [Verse 1]
    The road is endless and he walks alone
    In his own mind he is walkin' home
    But what he runs from are demons that will tag along
    And drag down at the duster of a vagabond
    He keeps movin' now only to slow the wrath
    Carryin' a switch blade and a photograph
    Longin' for a past, still he tries to start anew
    And he hasn't giving up yet but he's starting to
    See, he's driven every one of his dream cars down memory lane
    Spent nights out in the white house and of course joy rides on every plane
    Thinks he's keepin' it sane, cooled by the rain, takin' his aim, fueled by the pain
    Of dreamin' again and again of a life he'll never get to regain
    Walkin' in a world he's never known but he always knew
    That in these streets he stands alone, never still he passes through
    On the move, leavin' everywhere he goes without a trace
    Mindful of manufactured memories that have been erased

    I run, but I fall
    Can anyone, anyone at all
    See what I see now
    As the world ends tonight
    How long, can I go
    And will I last, even when I know
    That there's no way out
    As the world ends tonight

    [Verse 2]
    Hate in his heavy heart, wind on his weathered face
    Struggles he hopes will him find a better place
    Rememberin' everything he had and what it was
    Wishin' he could lose this memory wonderin' what it does
    This life has him questioning his will to fight
    But being left for dead doesn't go and make it right
    Cause baron city blocks will make him tare his eyes out
    Starved for the answers he falls down and cries out
    Why me, me of all people
    The same Adam you built before me I am just the sequel
    I am just an equal of any man, every man
    That walked this earth before me please tell me that you give a damn
    Give me something I can hold, show me something I can see
    Loneliness is gettin' cold, I need you here in front of me
    Tell me to my face and rid me of the fear
    Why me? Why am I the last one here?


    And as he looks around the cars are passing by
    And faces line the streets, staring as he hides
    Spending all this time alone and trapped within
    The world had stayed the same, the one who'd left was him
