This land is real, real as the next man
You're standing there so cold and calm

There's nothing owed to you

Big boys now with kids whose lives will never feel the same
To feel that way is born inside no matter what you do
I wonder how my fortune fell
The case I had for wasting that
I want to walk away again
Away again
Searching for that grand illusion fools have called the key
Nearer now are both our futures, me, our hearts and you
And yet all I want is to lose myself and stay so close to you
