Been Away Too Long
You can't go home, no I swear you never can
You can walk a million miles and get nowhere
I got nowhere to go ever since I came back
Just filling in the lines from the holes to the cracks
And...

No one knows me
No one saves me
No one loves or hates me
I've been away for too long

This place has a sṗecial kind of falling apart
Like they put the whole thing together in the dark
And no one knows where the edge of the knife is
And no one knows what intelligent life is
And...

No one knows me
No one saves me
No one loves or hates me

But it's fate
I only ever really wanted a break
I've been away for too long
Though I never really wanted to stay
I've been away for too long

I've been away for too long
I've been away for too long

Kilos through keyholes
Widows through windows
Pilots through eyelets
Everyone is silent

Tankards and flagons and snifters and flutes
On my way home

But it's fate
I only ever really wanted a break
I've been away for too long
Though I never really wanted to stay
I've been away

But it's fate
I only ever really wanted a break
I've been away for too long
Though I never really wanted to stay
I've been away for too long
Yeah
