Tired old man you're a wastin' slowly battling grey and blue
Built your empire like a shell so nobody prays on you

Remember when you were fresh and bitter like a blossom in its bud?
Struggle to keep the memories free from the sweat and blood

Just to generalize, you sleep and you rise and try to recognize
Like the Red Queen, you're running out of steam every mile
The highway of denial

What a funny way to spend the day like a farmer deep in debt
Tending to the coming harvest, ever trying to forget

Don't you feel like you wanna run away from the mess that you've begun?
Now that they won't let you make it up as you go along

Just to generalize, you sleep and you rise and try to recognize
Like the Red Queen, you're runnin' out of steam every mile
The highway of denial

Tired old man you're a wastin' slowly battling grey and blue
Built your empire like a shell so nobody preys on you
