Something's gone, I was lucky to have it
The axis shifted, I never felt it go

Ain't it the day you've been waiting for now
Is it less than you might have dreamed?
The view ahead mirroring behind you
Spinning the wheel of the one man scene

So when they told you take it as it comes
Who's it coming from
And did you ever think you'd take that fall now?
If you're lucky, running out of time
But you know that dying at this age ain't romantic at all

Starting over but it's all the same
A fiction destined for no one's eyes
Spreading venom when they hear your name
Until they think you could help them rise

Do you remember when you started out?
Zero cash, zero clout
Nothing but a stage to bluff, now
Never got what you were looking for
Always wanted more because it's never high or far enough

But wouldn't you have killed to be here not so long ago?
This could be all you get, don't waste it on your low

Something's gone, I was lucky to have it
The axis shifted, I never felt it go
Is it missing or was it eroded?
The odds were loaded, as if I didn't know

Something to prove for abandoned reasons
Electric passion of the raw naive
It's not the times or the youth we're missing
Just the hope that we once believed
