lyrics

He falls asleep again
It tends to happen now and then
A typecast sentence, five-to-ten

They all said he's through
I guess there's nothing left to do
But sit back and watch it all come true

"Well you can all go straight to hell
As soon as I am feeling well
I'll get up off this chair and fill my lungs with desert air
I don't want this life of disrepair."
A comeback unaware.

Black and white shadows pass for memories
Scrapbooks filled with a life forgot

The final curtain drawn down over a scene once written
But unread by his eyes
The story could not have been told by anyone but him
Anyone but you
A comeback overdue
