I walked out into the daylight
It’s been so long since I’ve seen
A mid-day sun
The cars are driving faster and
The sky has grown different
And cold
The dreams I held so long ago
Near forgotten, all but gone
And a passing car splashes
Through a puddle
Of broken dreams

And the shadows craft
Gracefully into the distant horizon
A long-lost thought of home
And a desert as barren
As the life to which I’ve just
Been freed

I drop my bus fare
Walk on board
And with a pocket full of cash
And a life burned down to ash
This moving metal box
Takes me back . . .
Takes me back

I walked out into the daylight
It’s been so long since I’ve seen
A mid-day sun
And everyone’s just moved along
And I know I’ve done something wrong
But where are all the birds
That used to sing along
With Blink 182

I drop my bus fare
Walk on board
And with a pocket full of cash
And a life burned down to ash
This moving metal box
Takes me back . . .
Takes me back
