It's more of an escape than an excuse.

they left you alone, far from your home,
you're far from anyone
despite how you cried, never apologized
for one thing you've done
come in from the rain, you're a sun-bleached water stain,
searching for what isn't there
though they're on the clock, i'm sure i'd rather not,
i was blessed that i don't care

'cause i'm leaving now
i promised myself i would find an out
you're still holding on, you're still holding out
for what isn't there
but i don't care

this was heading for disaster, i knew i should have asked you your name,
just one more time
and how you would've laughed, is that what made you ask?
i know you asked if it'd be alright

but i'm leaving now
i promised myself i would find an out
you're still holding on, you're still holding out
for what isn't there
but i don't care

isn't it funny how you understand
the plite of your fellow man
when you're held by the same vice
when you're riding on the same dice
isn't it funny how you sympathize
when you take the time to look into my eyes
and we're held by the same problem
that no one will solve

'cause i'm leaving now
i'm leaving now
i know i can't change
i know i won't change this time around

Sounds so much like Soul Asylum. Very, very nice track. Sounds studio ready, excellent quality.

Really nice
I dig all your tracks. This is one of the best. I dig the sound,
the structure, the performance, the rhymes, the length of
your lines, the feel. The MIDI strings integrate well. The
compression is causing some pumping every now and then
in the levels, and maybe setting a faster recovery time for the
limiting algorithm might help. Very cool track.

This track is really great! I loved the fact that it is just an
acoustic and strings. It lets your great voice take the center
stage. I loved your lyrics! Fantastic song!
