He looked up to the sky

Simply waiting for a sign

Couldn't see very far 

Had to read between the lines

When you lose track of time

Hard to keep your thoughts in mind

But wait more for the sign

And it will show who you are


I looked away from the sky

Not waiting for a sign

I can see pretty far and

close enough to read time

Don't need to rethink life

I am doing just fine

All my thoughts will stay in line

But I don't know who I am


They looked up to the sky

All waiting for the same sign

Got Impatient, found a plane

And then learned how to fly

In this big crowd of minds

Nobody thinks to ask why

Glad they know who they are

But still don't know who to thank



?Thought you were my friend

but it turns out I was wrong

Seems the older we got,

the more you crushed our great bond

Only way I still hear of you

is through the friendship of our moms

But once I tell her what I know

Im sure that won't last very long

Instead of taking the road less traveled

You took the one most taken

Spent too long helping you

to realize you're not worth saving

You don't mind whatever job you have

As long as your the one getting paid and not paying

My mom didn't believe me

but says that for you, I should keep praying

You may have her fooled but don't think the same for me

Seeing you getting crushed

is the moment I've been waiting to see

You're not the friend I once knew

Nor a person that I would want to be

Perhaps our friendship ended too soon and easily

But it pains me to tell you you're not the friend I once knew



What will become of me once I am gone?

Will I die knowing that what I did was right

Or will I discover everything I believed in was wrong

They say at the end of each tunnel there's always a light

But what if the light is just too bright for me to live on


Even if you're gonna lose, have to finish the fight

But the fight's what got me here so where do I really belong

The tunnel ending's light is still nowhere in my sight

Nobody said the journey would be taking this long

What will I leave behind before permanently closing my eyes

I guess none of us will know till the day that I'm gone
