Lyrics:

It left a hole in me and my identity leaked over the weeks
Should I be empty by now?
Should I be empty by now?

I was smiling the moment the train crashed
I never expected the moment I saw you last
So how can I trust in these tracks?
I don't trust in these tracks, no

Why bother walking--it's a wasteland
And misery--it clouds the sky
Why bother when it's still a wasteland?
And misery still fills the sky

I know everybody lies, but I still hope she won't lie to me
I think I'd rather lie to myself
Than be lonely

And with her fingers holding mine
Around the wheel as we dream about the drive
We'll make it out of this place
And then we'll come alive, come alive

Why bother walking--it's a wasteland
And misery--it clouds the sky
Why bother when it's still a wasteland?
And misery still fills the sky

I don't need you anyway...

Why bother walking--it's a wasteland
And misery--it clouds the sky
Why bother when it's still a wasteland?
And misery still fills the sky
