lyrics

Weary Traveler

I am the weary traveler just a point in space and time
Outside the pounding rhythm of the sleepwalker’s steady climb
On through the spreading wilderness of concrete, steel and fire
The dream was built by the dreamers who have never been satisfied

I witness the unraveling like a bird upon a wire
For miles and miles...

Oh to feel the quickening from this point in time and space
On a world spinning on without her rest while a ghost who walks in place
Is just blazing through this crowded mess; a frantic comfort zone
Where routine is the antidote and the poison the unknown

You’re stranded on a sinking ship, please reach for my hand
The rush you feel is undertow, your confidence is sand

Everyone I’ve ever loved is dead and gone
Every moment I pass through just turns into the stone
Every dream that I have ever had is laying somewhere on the road
Every time I feel alive I am alone

There’s a breeze blowing through this house of cards
And the clockwork has long since frozen
I strolled on by that old machine just a grinding down the road
The gears have rolled those broken wheels locking in the dream outside the cage
Now the cogs are scattered everywhere left in a state of slow decay

To all you weary travelers undeterred by reality
The powder keg is reaching for the spark to set us free

Oh, everyone I’ve ever loved is dead and gone
Every moment I pass through is turned into a stone
Every dream that I have ever had is laying somewhere on the road
Every time I feel alive I am alone
