Left to Right

lyrics

We are still on the search
After millions of years
While the story is complete
For all supposed equal peers

But I will not die later
More likely too soon
My clock ticks as clocks so do
Drives this part of thought to ruin

So I leave the house
Maybe the streets are empty
But hope still stirs

Left to right
I keep on looking for the medal that I made
You shine in light, but turn and deny the shade

Left to right
I keep on looking, never to escape this mind
In my sight, but much too far away

Recapitulate the scene
Where you would hang your head
Disappointment by my fault
What more is to be said?

Never ending condescending
Familiar advice
Never bending out of shape
And now I pay the price

So I leave the house
Maybe this time is different
But I've been trapped

Left to right
I keep on looking for the medal that I made
You shine in light, but turn and deny the shade

Left to right
I keep on looking, never to escape this mind
In my sight, but much too far away

I've learned so many lessons well
But in this world, logic doesn't sell
Ten second start for the lucky ones
All else take cover in your shell

Left to right
I keep on looking for the medal that I made
You shine in light, but turn and deny the shade

Left to right
I keep on looking, never to escape this mind
In my sight, but much too far away
