Two roads
Split off from here,
And my life goes running in opposite directions.
Exaggerating the barrier
Between who I am, and who I want to be.

I wanted to be that breath of fresh air,
When everything smelled so insincere.
But this taste still lingers in my mouth,
Deceit has ways of sticking around.
And I'm ready to disappear,
Vacation seems far, seems far from here.

Note to self:
I miss you terribly.
This is what we call a tragedy.
Come back to me, come back to me, to me.
Note to self:
I miss you terribly.
This is what we call a tragedy.
Come back to me, back to me, to me.

I can feel my mind, wandering again.
Into where I don't know, and will I ever get home?
Time starts moving, faster than I can.
And I'm sick of this scene,
I need to break the routine.

I can feel my mind, wandering again.
Into where I don't know, and will I ever get home?
Time starts moving, faster than I can.
And I'm sick of this scene,
I need to break the routine.

Two roads
Split off from here,
And my life goes running in opposite directions.
Exaggerating the barrier between who I am, and who I want to be.

Which part of me is lost?
I feel so close, and yet I am so far.
Which part of me is lost?
I feel so close, and yet I am so...far!

    i think its about the old guy in the video looking back on all of the
    things in his life. notice how it shows the baby, then the kid then the adult, and then it shows him. and the lyrics kindof explain it.

    I think its supposed to reflect on how a person tries to be what they think they should be,and what they are.
    They wanted to be different.And once they finally change,they miss themselves,and who they were before,then everything becomes a mess,and they cant find themselves,they are lost.

    I think this song is great to listen to when I'm depressed or just about angry because it has lyrics that really touches me in ways that explain my feelings that I have for life or how I'm feeling about something.

    I think its about a guy stuck between two worlds of who is and who he wants to be. And then he loses a girt and how he misses her
