I could not stay
Prior to this
And I cannot not stay
Not even now
Not even here

Were you said
I should spread my roots
You said this place,
My place,
would hold love for me

And now I'm soon all bled out
I held on hard to every drop
But it was never thick enough
So after all this work
After all the sweat and tears
When it bore so little fruit

Why did I even try?

And now there's soon nothing left
But this time
might really be the last time

It goes back around
For better or for worse
Soon there's nothing left here
That keeps me

I'm sorry
For any
My friend
Yet I'm all but
For what ails you
This time

I restarted, I cut my heart out, I did everything you said I should
Still I couldn't find the peace I did it all for

So I let things burn, I let them bleed to death
And you ask me how that is better
Well haven't I already answered?

Because this is...
Or at least it was, for twenty two years
And where ever I'm going now
It cant be worse

It feels great to know
It's really is all the same
And this is my last chance
To go somewhere new

So I'm not waiting another day
With this
You will no longer know me as
The one, who wherever he goes
where ever he tries to stay
Has come to the wrong place
