This Place
I GET NOSTALGIC FROM TIME TO TIME, THE NEED TO RETURN TO THIS PLACE
I'M NOT SURE WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR, OR WHAT I WILL FIND
BUT I'M SURE OF THIS - IT'S BEST LEFT BEHIND

ONCE AGAIN I MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE
AS THE WOLF PACK GATHERS, BUT THERE'S NO FLESH LEFT TO TAKE
THIS LACK OF JUDGEMENT IT ASTOUNDS EVEN ME
SUCH IS THE EMPTINESS OF THIS FAMILIARITY

I DRIVE SO FAR TO GET AWAY, BUT I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO ESCAPE
A BAD TASTE STUCK IN MY THROAT
A DULLING NUMBNESS IN MY EARS

AND THIS PLACE IS BEST VIEWED FROM A DISTANCE
FROM A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
FROM FAR OVER THESE HILLS
FROM A PLACE WITH DIFFERENT NAMES
FROM THE EDGE OF THE EARTH

I KNOW THIS TOWN IS BIG ENOUGH FOR BOTH OF US
YOU HAVE YOUR CORNER, I'LL FIND MINE
BUT YOU CAN'T REMAIN THERE, YOU HAVE TO PUSH AND MAKE A FUSS
DON'T SAY YOU DON'T BECAUSE YOU DO IT EVERY TIME

AND BECAUSE OF YOU, THIS PLACE IS BEST VIEWED FROM A DISTANCE
FROM A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
FROM FAR OVER THESE HILLS
FROM A PLACE WITH DIFFERENT NAMES
FROM THE EDGE OF THE EARTH

YOU KEEP PUSHING ME
YOU JUST KEEP PUSHING ME AWAY
YOU CAN'T STOP PUSHING ME
YOU JUST KEEP.....
