I didn't know where went the time.
With so many squandered chances just a few were mine
And ever since this soul was born
I've been grasping for the horn
But now it might be time to mourn the son that didn't shine.
I didn't know where old friends are grown
In a million lonely people very few have shown
That there is progress in a race
As we are gasping for a trace
Yet we are still afraid to face things on our own.

Turn it around; steer clear
Take us far away from here.
There's a bold new path
And somebody knows the way.
There must be a sign so lay in a course.
Grab a subway, hop on a horse
I don't care, I just know that we've lost ground.
It's time to turn around.

And one day you feel your best day's behind.
Further forward in the future little left to find.
And there's just a silent empty place
And a slightly slower pace
Where there once used to be some space to ease your mind.
But when you look back you might find a branch
Where the younger version of you had a different chance
Which you could take to start anew
And build a very different you
Until the one you thought you knew was just a trance.


Cause sometimes you've gone around in a circle
Lading away from the path you've got.
What have you found - is it the place you sought? it's not.



from Phase Transition, released October 21, 2013
