lyrics

Oh, well it's your last day
And you're looking for some closure to the end of your stay
But the sun is setting now
And the time you had slipped away somehow

And it never did seem fair
Wanna go but don't know where
Got some idea of some excitement
Some conclusion, some satisfaction
Some way to make it all make sense

All we get are loose ends
Start something, end it, going nowhere again
Feels like there's something, something worth doing
Some final goal, some ultimate purpose
Some way to make it all connect

She lights another cigarette
Says another won't hurt, it hasn't killed me yet
She's looking out watching red sunset
It's a dead sort of feeling, not happy and not upset

Oh, well it's your last day
And you're looking for some closure to the end of your stay
Well here's the question no one likes to address:
Where are we going with this whole damn mess?
Convinced ourselves that there's something it means
There must be somewhere it's all gonna lead

I wanna be a part of something, something meaningful
I wanna be a part of something, something beautiful

And it never did seem fair
Wanna go but don't know where
Got some idea of some excitement
Some conclusion, some satisfaction
Some way to make it all make sense

Well I don't have the answer
I just live along the best that I can
And no one has the answer
We all just tell ourselves the best that we can

I wanna be a part of something, something deliberate
I wanna be a part of something, something infinite
