lyrics

I look back on my life, I sigh, and then I wonder what happened
I used to hide in my lonely head, but now it's not very quiet
Sometimes I wish I had youth again
But nobody's asking
Eras of lost time I can't recall
What was I doing?
Wide awake, my head, it aches with reticence to own the past and take the blame
Wide awake, my head, it aches with eagerness to leave the past and take my place
People and places that haunt me still
My private museum
Wish you could see them
Inanimate planet inside my head
A place to be guarded
Forget how it started
Because history's fuzzy and prejudiced
Preserved but so hazy
Torch it and run
Make it disappear
Created by my hand: a burdensome wasteland
Wide awake, my head, it aches with reticence to own the past and take the blame
Wide awake, my head, it aches
I'm ready to change
Can't let go of the dullest pains
They've all been wrapped in cellophane
Suffocating
Just dwelling on it
All alone, another day
A force of habit, more of the same
Silly things are dragging me down
Closing in, there's no way to slow it down
A tidal wave of old hate
Smothered by it
I'm burning down the shrine today
Torch it all
Set ablaze
Drive away
Forget about it.
