The voices that did comfort me
At furthest from my sanity
Come from places I had never seen
Even in my darkest recollection
There was someone singing my life back to me

The life you learn from someone else
That you can only trust yourself
Sometimes that is still too much to want
Morality won't get you through the mazes
(Gravity won't get you through the mazes)
You can never travel by the way you've come

I could never choose the ones to love
And the ones who took the credit left me reeling
But I owe much to the nameless
And all the surrogates
Those who're singing my life back to me

Life is not a constant thing
It's only made of short stories
I couldn't even tell you where I'm from
Guided by the voices I've perfected
(Guided by the voices I've perfected)
Guided by electric wires' hum

I could never choose the ones to love
And the ones who took the credit left me reeling
But I owe much to the nameless
And all the surrogates
Those who're singing my life back to me

Well I'll see you in the future skipping time
While the eyes of all the faithful rest in peace
And tonight I see the highway
Like a cheetah underfoot
And someone's singing my life back to me
Someone's singing my life back to me
