Unable to define this moment in time
I reach out into the cold dark night
Trying to determine if I’m here alone
Fighting back the years of muffled light
Finding nobody here I recede once again
Into the confines of self-pity and spite
Wond’rin desperately was I really alone
When I reached out into the night

Are they lying to me when they tell me
In their letters when they say they were here?
Were they pulling my chain when they drove me insane
And told me I had nothing to fear?

Unable to define my place in the line
I’m trying so hard to fly away
I wonder if there’s a such thing as destiny
And if there’s much more for me to say
So when it gets down to the line
And we realize deep down that we’re alone
We can ask all the questions and tell all our lies
But no one will help us carry the stone

And were they lying to me when the told me
In their letters when they say they were here?
Are they pulling my chain as they drive me insane
Is it true I have nothing to fear?
