Closer To Nowhere (Foster Jen)

Do you know who you are? Do you ever think about it? If you were told it’s a place Would you drive until you found it? Or would you turn down a street That you know would lead to where you were before? You call it home, but are you really sure That’s your home? Do you know what you want? Have you ever reconsidered What a trip we are on And it’s the only ride we’re given? If you could fly, would you try? Would your feet stay firmly planted on the ground? Can you explain why the only place you go Is to waste? Now you go to work and you work all day You smoke and bitch on your coffee break You tell some jokes to kill that time Til the boss comes back and at the stroke of 5 You hit those bars, you have some drinks You drown in all your long lost dreams Oh no, you’re closer to nowhere Do you know who you love? Can you say those words with feeling? Or when you look in those eyes Is there someone else you’re seeing? Do you dream of a day You could take the love without running away? What is it now? Do you need a little space? Or are you wanting out? Now you go to work and you work all day You smoke and bitch on your coffee break You grab that phone, rehearse those lines Then you call home sayin’ you gotta work tonight You hit those bars, you buy some drinks For the first one who looks good and thinks you’re cool You’re closer to nowhere... You fake it so well Nobody can tell You buy what they sell You’re going places.... Now you go to work and you work all day You smoke and bitch on your coffee break You share your plans and you swear you’ll quit Maybe next year or the year after it You hit those bars, you have some drinks You take those pills, you go to sleep You wake up someday all alone You realize another year is gone You’re closer to nowhere And all these signs will be your guides But you must pay attention And all the lights that line the sides Are beautiful, don’t miss them... You’re closer to nowhere...
