I'm tired of this world,
and I think it's time that I-
found my own to call my own.
In the back of your mind,
keeping time by
ticks in your spine-
a backtrack from some sublime
that you'll never know
'cause your culture told you so-
to stick it out in line-
god'll pick you when it's time-
well this story may be yours, but it's not mine.

Walking home one night, passing by
an empty home,
I thought that I'd make it my own.
So I walked up inside,
opened the door, just to find...
The exact home I'd left behind!
