Punchin' in, yet again
Break of dawn, I sneak a yawn
A new friend, pretend
Lend an ear, and disappear

Sit alone, eat alone
On your own, you scream and moan
To get by, to wonder why
You wanna die, and can't deny it

I look at myself and see a selfish me
Breakin' glass up against the wall, and
Cut myself as I try to crawl

How can I compete this way, and
How can I defeat this day?
How am I supposed to be brave, and
How am I supposed to behave?

I see myself out the window again, and
I go along as we play pretend, and
The right and wrong that we comprehend, and
A state of mind that you must defend

I realize that you're on your own
I realize that you've lose your home, and
I empathize with your scream and moan, so
Recognize that you're not alone

I wonder when and I think of why
I wandered into a guilty mind
I had a friend who was left behind
I think of when and I wonder why

I wish you a better life, and
I wish you a better time, and
I wish you to come alive, and
I wish you a better right hand

On your own, scream and moan
A state of mind that you must defend
I say goodbye to my friend, pretend
