​Exodus

This song is by Evanescence and appears on the EP Evanescence EP (1998).

My black backpack's stuffed with broken dreams
Twenty bucks should get me through the week
Never said a word of discontent
Thought it a thousand times but now I'm leaving home

Here in the shadows
I'm safe, I'm free
I've nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay where I don't belong

Two months pass by and it's getting cold
I know I'm not lost, I'm just alone
But I won't cry, I won't give up, I can't go back now
Waking up is knowing who you really are

Here in the shadows
I'm safe, I'm free
I've nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay where I don't belong

Show me the shadow where true meaning lies
So much more dismay in empty eyes
