They Left Today (Lightyear)

(Don't ya know?) I start to look back Back track to better times then I find People clinging on to what was once (People hanging on to what was once) A new scene in a kid's dream Now a barfly and a has-been Their static souls And now they start to rust I really think I need some sort of Change in my life How can I feed this fire that's deep inside of me? How can I stop this from consuming my life? One decision to heal personal integrity I start to look back Back track to better times then I find People clinging on to what was once A new scene in a kid's dream Now a barfly and a has-been Their static souls And now they start to rust I really think I need some sort of Change in my life How can I feed this fire that's deep inside of me? How can I stop this from consuming my life? One decision to heal personal integrity A late goodbye to my closest friends of my closest years As we lay that dream to rest A thousand times seem to drift away far too naturally Is it something that I should accept? But life's forwards not backwards A change for us all New chapter of ourselves I feel it, the one call Of freedom and difference Like a bird in a cage Looking through the holes singing Of the pain and the rage Of seeing the outside and knowing it's there Things put into place if you leave and compare This old place of old times As good as they've been To an entire sky that waits there until seen Until seen They left today
