about

Written 2001.

lyrics

(revised)

He's a geographic mistake
With little hope of escape
And the plans that he made all flow down the drain
With the rest of the rain

He is known by one or two
Who don't mind a different view
But the jokes that he makes are a mystery to most
So he spends his time alone
And he lives in a world of his own

He eats, he sleeps, he works, and he plays
He creates his dreams, and he counts the days
He stares at the walls of the space he maintains
He has his place in this world

He could have stood apart
If he knew just how to start
All that he wants is a sense of success
All he gets is one day less
All he lacks is all that he wants

He eats, he sleeps, he works, and he plays
He creates his dreams, and he counts the days
He stares at the walls of the space he maintains
He has his place in this world

His room will greet no guests
So he veils his mind in rest
And day after day he climbs out of his bed
And he hears the words left unsaid
And he lives inside his head

He eats, he sleeps, he works, and he plays
He creates his dreams, and he counts the days
He stares at the walls of the space he maintains
He has no place in this world
