I sit here in my wasteland, I watch my world turn,
where did the time go, what did I learn?
I learned about love, I learned about error,
about betrayal and loyalty, about honor
and character. "Oh where has the time gone?"
I ask myself now, It's trapped in a bottle on yesterdays shore.
To anyone listening, to anyone who cares,
I'll tell you the secrets, my soul I lay bare.
Don't follow those dark footsteps that call out your name,
Don't listen to those demons who will leave you in shame.
Follow those instincts and watch for the flame,
it can lead you to heaven or burn you like hell.
Take all that you're given, try to live right,
your heart holds the answers like stars that burn bright.
If only I'd listened, If only I'd learned,
I could have escaped all the demons,
for my soul they so yearned.
For me now, gone are the good times along with the bad,
I'm left now with dreams of what I could have had.
I now own my own wasteland and I call it my home,
my empire of sadness, my castle of sand.
