Evaporated

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 way
For being too pent up and proud

Woke up way too late
Feeling hung over and old
And the sun was shining bright
And I walked barefoot down the road
Started thinkin’ about my old man
It seems that all men
Wanna get into a car and go
Anywhere

Here I stand–sad & free
I can’t cry and I can’t see
What I’ve done
God…What have I done

So don’t you know I’m numb, man
No I don’t feel a thing at all
Cause its all smiles & business these days
and I am indifferent to the loss
I’ve faith that there’s a soul somewhere
whose leading me around
I wonder if she knows
Which way is down…

Here I stand–sad & free
I can’t cry and I can’t see
What I’ve done
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
Or maybe I’m a kite
That’s flying high & random
Dangling a string
Or slumped over in a vacant room
Head on a stranger’s knee
I’m sure back home
They think I’ve lost my mind
