What I've kept with me,
And what I've thrown away.
And where the hell I've ended up
On this glary, random day
Were the things I really cared about,
Just left along the away.
For being too pent up and proud

Woke up way too late,
Feeling hungover and old.
And the sun was shining bright
And I walked barefoot down the road.

Started thinking 'bout my old man,
It seems that all I want to get into a car and go,
Anywhere.

Here I stand,
Sad and free.
I can't cry,
And I can't see
What I've done.
Oh God what have I done?

Don't you know I'm numb, man
No I can't feel a thing at all
Cos it's all smiles and business these days
And I'm indifferent to the loss

I think that there's a soul somewhere
That's leading me around.
I wonder if she knows which way is down

Here I stand,
Sad and free.
I can't cry,
And I can't see
What I've done.
Oh God what have I done?

I poured my heart out.
I poured my heart out.
It evaporated.
See.

Blind man on a canyon's edge
Of a panoramic scene.
Maybe I'm kite that's flying high and random
Dangling on a string
Or slumped over in a vacant room,
Head on a strangers knee.
I'm sure back home.
They think I've lost my mind.

Here I stand,
Sad and free.
I can't cry,
And I can't see
What I've done.
Oh God what have I done?
