  • You're always saying that there's something wrong.
    I'm starting to believe it's you're playing along.
    Death came around, forced to hear it's song
    And know tomorrow can't be depended on

    Seen the home inside your head.
    Unlocked doors and unmade beds

    Open sores unattended
    Let me say just once that

    I have faced it, a life wasted.
    I'm never going back again.
    I escaped it,a life wasted.
    I'm never going back again.
    Having tasted, a life wasted.
    I'm never going back again.

    The world awaits just up the stairs
    Leave the pain for someone else
    Nothing back there for you to find
    Or was it you you left behind

    You're always saying you're too weak to be Strong.
    You're harder on yourself than just about Anyone

    Why swim the channel just to get this far?
    Halfway there, why would you turn around?

    Darkness comes in waves...tell me,
    Why invite it to stay?

    You're one with negativity
    Yes, comfort is an energy
    But why let the sad song play?

    I have faced it, a life wasted
    I'm never going back again

    Oh I escaped it, a life wasted
    I'm never going back again

    Having tasted, a life wasted
    I'm never going back again

    Oh I erased it, a life wasted
    I'm never going back again Writer/s: EDDIE VEDDER, STONE GOSSARD
