In a crazy world of one-night stands,
One-way reproving from the man,
I'm watching from the sidelines
And waiting for the phone to ring.
It's funny 'cause you think I care
When I just wonder if I lost you there
As I wandered right on down the road,
And missed the darkness for the scenery.
Once in a while I can hear
Your voice, it's ringing in my ears
As I wonder where I went wrong,
And figure that it must just have been you.
This all, it is no fault of mine,
But I hear from you from time to time,
And you tell me I'm wrong but I try again,
'Cause no one else is gonna stop to save you.
I'm waiting for the day to come
When the walls all crash on down at once,
And you deny it now and then,
But I see you waiting for it, too.
That moment may have come and gone,
I wouldn't know, I've not seen it all;
One thing that I can tell you is I'll stay for now,
But I won't stick around to see it all to end.
'Cause friends and things, they know I've tried,
And no one sees it's all a lie,
But hell if I'll be the one to tell
And break their glass menagerie.
So I'll look on from the sidelines
As the friend I used to know goes on and
Kills himself, from the inside out,
Become just another faceless body
In the crowd.
I'll see you on the other side, my friend.
