lyrics

Days blend into night,
as candle lights dim like the health of this life.
Because the rearview mirror had plenty to say – like your freedom’s found in the sunset rays,
but my hands are shaking, my hope wears thin, this hope wears small like the tight of my skin,
this Supertramp has met his match: a life lived short; a life at that.

I lived a new man,
I breathed a new name,
I knew no boundaries, and I was “free”.

Now, the trees, they sing me to sleep,
sing me to peace,
beg me to leave,
because four years, they take their toll and life is just too long.
I lived afraid of a nine-to-five necktie!
On my life, this nine-to-five necktie!

It’s pretty funny, you know, I thought I knew everything,
that day I turned the key that locked the door that ignited the freedom in me.
You can think you’re right, you can think it through,
but when you think you've “got it all”, you never really know, no,
you've never really known at all!

I lived a new man,
I breathed a new name,
I knew no boundaries, was I free?

Now, the trees, they sing me to sleep,
sing me to peace,
beg me to leave,
because four years, they took their toll and life was just too long
to live afraid of a nine-to-five necktie!
On my life, this nine-to-five necktie!


My material self, my material things,
that pile of ash! … the material me.

Was it all really worth it? As I reflect in the end.
When you romanticize the future, don’t romanticize “The End”.
