Lyrics:

Inner Conflict

I know I talk too much without saying what's on my mind.
But what can I say that's never been said before?
How do I tell myself to fight the grind?
When I don't even know who I am anymore?
And why can't I take what I can find?
Instead of always walking out the door?

(I) should have listened to the things I never said.
(I) should have seen the things I never did, or ever, ever will.

I don't have much to offer -- I am fortunate.
All I've got now lies on my empty floor.
Do I leave in the morning? Why should I care less?
When I go, I'll be gone a thousand miles and more.
I can't run from my problems. My life is such a mess.
It's just another lesson I should have learned before.

A picture's worth a thousand words, or so 'they' say.
But a thousand pictures won't tell my story.
There's strength in numbers, but only one stands here today.
Tip my hat against the sun and I'll see where the road will lead me.
If I keep running, I'm just running from what I've made.
With a few bridges left to burn, I'll soon fade away.

I'll soon fade away.
I'll soon fade away.
I'll soon fade away.
I'll soon fade away.

I'm going nowhere far too fast.
I know that in leaving, it's too late to turn back.

I'm tired of dealing with the past.
I know it's there and I know it never lasts.

I'm going nowhere far too fast.
I know that in leaving, it's too late to turn back.

I'm going nowhere far too fast.
I know that in leaving, it's too late to turn back.
