If I open my eyes
would I feel at home?
Would all the shapes and colors
be what I've come to know?
Could I put a name to
every familiar face?
Or would I still be haunted
by these ghosts I can't escape?

I know there is no better place to go

Always playing what if
but I never win
Never could escape from
this familiar skin
What am I afraid of?
What can't I bear to face?
And what will always haunt me
as a ghost I can't erase?

I know there is no better place to go
But I'm always running somewhere
Always on the road
