Eighteen years gone by, decide, you tried To open up your mind, but it's the pressure This pressure, that's building up deep inside Don't you say, "They'll never listen to me!" You speak of trying and abiding Giving great big apologies Well it seems, so indirect You never sought to realize, But now you see you're next Check it out, you're gonna come to But you'll never figure out Just what is that sound! What's that sound! You never though you know it! Well every time I wake up I try, Why? To keep the dream alive Despising thoughts, of things far gone with time But everyday surpassing all the while You're passing right on through and yeah You're faking your smile so, Let it go! We'll figure it out! As days go by, you scream and you shout out No other way, but going around When will you figure out? Just what you have found! What you've found! You never sought you know it! But now, your final years have gone by You never tried You lived your life, just to see it go passing by Now saying, "What if I? I mean, why couldn't I? Have done the things I wanted in life?" One step back, but always too far You couldn't think about Just what it is you are You didn't know, Yeah you'd always say, "It's the thought that counts..." I think it just brought you down! Brought you down! You never thought you know it! Brought! Brought! Brought! Brought! Brought! Brought! Brought! You down!
