lyrics

Page one, line one, focus in on the subject
Pick another new year and call me someone else
My horoscope is a horror show
And it's like I'm living in the undertow
It's been too long for me to tell

So someone call me and tell me I'll be okay
Someday
Pick a number, choose a name
And tell me who I am today

I am burning bright like a distant star
I am flaming out like a voyager
So we can't see the end of the world
If we get that far tonight
The war is never over so long as we fight

The light at the end of the tunnel
Is the rest of the world burning
Just know I love you, friend
I'm still waiting here, still calling a truce
Because I want to feel like I'm making a difference
And not just killing time til the end

So I'm closing off my better days
Saying one last toast to my old ways
And greeting the dawn with another face
Is that a promise or a threat these days

I am burning bright like a distant star
I am flaming out like a voyager
So we can't see the end of the world
If we get that far tonight
The war is never over so long as we fight

All I have is my words
And they won't ever be enough
I can change what I am, take a different name
Try out a new face, take a share of the blame
We're not fighting for our place in line
And if it's not ours then it's time

Burning bright like a distant star
I am flaming out like a voyager
So we can't see the end of the world
If we get that far tonight
The war is never over so long as we fight
