I do know that I’m not
The only one who’s ever had this thought
Of never seeing anyone I know again
And maybe I’m fine with that every now and then
I don't know how my roots can grow that deep
If there’s always six feet of concrete between the ground and my feet
I’m just stuck on the same patch of ground
Like some poor child’s jacket tossed in the lost and found

Have I met anyone who has seen the light
Or are they just as dumb and twice as blind
I’m the one here left to wonder
If this is the sound of me being buried six feet under
I’m the kinda guy who likes to smile
And you the kinda girl who likes to make me wait a while
While I’m sitting here on my wealth
And all the other good children are given their health

Have you found what you’re looking for
Its all the same in the eyes of some or other lord
I’ve been force fed these lines
Maybe if I give them to you
You could forget them in good time

Can I count all the times
That I’ve tried to cast out my line
Though my catch was always a little thin
And I managed to find a little peace within
I know that we’re all here together
Gone tomorrow and thick through the weather
I’m out here cold, wet by and by
Do you think that you could please let me inside

Have you found the place you’re looking for
You always end up paying to some or other landlord
I’m out here wasting all of my time
Waiting to pay the same
The same old fines
