Time Forgot

Polished my shoes, bought a brand new hat
Moved to a town that time forgot
Where I don't have to shave or be approachable
No I can do just what I want
 
I wanna walk in that howling wind
'til it scatters all my thoughts
Sit all alone on the river bank
'til I forget that I can talk
Just listen
 
They say everyone has a choice to make
To be loved or to be free
I told you once I felt invisible
And I guess by now you see
 
That what I meant is I'm not all there
Until I finally leave
Some loneliness is acceptable
And some's just out right mean
It gets even
 
The ivy crawls up the garden wall
Builds a ladder towards the sun
It can't be climbed but who's gonna mind
If I claim it can be done
Illusion
 
And the sun goes down,
And the stars come out
The distance that I felt,
I can see it for myself now
 
Boarded a train to take my memories back
Make up for time that I have lost
I'll never know if I'm delusional
I just believe that I am not
 
I'm gonna work for my sanity
Give it everything I got
Though so far I have cheated death,
I know someday I'll get caught
Just living
 
So here we go man, it's beautiful,
Get your trumpet, get your drum
We'll be keeping time in a second line,
It can make you feel so young
 
I know you say you'll go all the way but that's not quite far enough
Someone told me that same thing
Someone told me that same thing
Someone told me that exact same thing once
 
Thanks!
