I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's only me to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of broken dreams
When the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a-

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone


Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh-Ah
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line of the edge
And where I walk alone

Read between the lines of what's
Fucked up and everything's all right
Check my vital signs to know I'm still alive
And I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a-

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I'll walk alone...

Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah
Ahhh-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah
I walk alone
I walk a-

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of broken dreams
When the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a-

My shadows the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I'll walk alone

    Wow, ficus, insightful, but not quite the story.

    The real story behind this song is actually told throughout the entire CD. This is part four. This song catches the Jesus of Suburbia just after he left home and he's partied for a couple days or whatever. But now the party's over, he's hung over, and he's starting to realize he can't live completely on his own. He can't depend on only himself. Now his future is unclear to him, he can't even tell if he's going to live to see tomorrow. He knows he screwed up, but he still doesn't give up and go home. He follows the road he's on, even if he can't see enough to know where he's going. He doesn't know what to do. He's lost, and now he wants his drugs and to go back to partying, but he's too lost to even find his way back to that.
    The story picks up where Holiday left off. It is followed be Are We The Waiting
