Out With the Old, In With the Old

Seems the more things never change, they never change

Same old face getting older all the time

See-saw to nowhere sends you on your way

Back where you started, only back a bit

A dead end driveway with no room to turn around

A one way street going directly past your exit

Helplessly watching as you're going the wrong direction

Board the wrong bus; watching as your destination sails by

Take the wrong flight and it doesn’t matter,

You still end up in the same ghost town

Empty echoes fill your head; empty promises you’ll never keep

Staring at nothing sure hurts the eyes

Drifting reality gives way to desolation

Can’t quite remember the words to a song you used to know by heart

Can’t place the face of a well-known actor

How can time pass so quickly and so slow?
