lyrics

Feeling sort of empty, like my best days are now behind me.
I never thought I'd go down in flames, but now I can't see the road before me.
My tired feet are all that I have to stand on now.
My first impression always left you second guessing
Why'd you come to be here, you could be the better man
I just had to say this, hide your face but don't despair
I'm a waste of time but I'm trying to hide the mess I am inside
(I cut you, I cut you out)
Now at the core of my design, you'll find.

You wish that I would disappear, and I can't blame you, but I'm still here.
And I just wanted you to know
That sometimes I wish I was born in the midwest, so that my words weren't meaningless
Well it's better off this way, to be lonely.

Weary eyes have fallen asleep, but my body will creep through the dark night.
Looking for the first light of the sunrise to show me something.
Like medication, but not the kind in plastic bottles
More like the kind you'd find in an empty rest stop stall
When there's no one to call will you fall prey to your demons

My bed's just a place that I've come to fear
(No rest for the weary, no sleep for the blind)
When the lights go out, ya it's just as hard to find

You wish that I would disappear, and I can't blame you, but I'm still here.
And I just wanted you to know
That sometimes I wish I was born in the midwest, so that my words weren't meaningless
Well it's better off this way, to be lonely.

Did you miss me, cuz I never heard you scream my name in vane.
Well I guess there's a part of me still missing, I never thought I'd change

When it all comes down to this, I failed to mention.
I'll never know what kind of man I ought to be.
I'm still on the search, I'm looking for the best part of me

You wish that I would disappear, and I can't blame you, but I'm still here.
And I just wanted you to know
That sometimes I wish I was born in the midwest, so that my words weren't meaningless
Well it's better off this way, to be lonely.
