lyrics

like enoch before god i came to you to plead my case
and to beg from you forgiveness for the sorry human race
but you just laughed and told me not to get too sentimental
cause if we both ended up right here, well that's only coincidental

on the floor missed connections ads with my name and this address
two skinny bodies in a motel bed, we must have looked quite a mess
as we looked out upon the secret places and the shining thrones of the earth
and you damned it all, cause even if we were sorry, well, what the hell was that worth?

you didn't wanna go home again
you didn't wanna go home
you didn't wanna go home again
you didn't wanna go home

the road outside wends past us like some faint and distant star
might not even be there anymore, we can't tell from where we are
you say you still get nightmares where one of us is dead
i ask which one, but neath the rising sun, you close your eyes and shake your head

on the floor, old photographs of two young and dying men
one of them looks a bit like me, the other we won't see again
as you flicked on the bathroom light and burned your silhouette into my eyes
yeah, you damned it all cause all is not forgiven but still everybody dies

you didn't wanna go home again
you didn't wanna go home
you didn't wanna go home again
you didn't wanna go home

and you said

i'll move on, it's easy to see
and when i'm gone, i'll be what i was meant to be
i'll move on, and when i'm finally free
when all is lost, i'll be what i was meant to be
