The Road To Nevermind

No one here is listening
To a single word you say
You know yourself so well
You’re gonna say it any way
That’s how it all gets easier
How anger is confined
On the road to never mind

Now all the things you value
Don’t have value any more
They seem to take for granted
All the things that you fought for
But they’re just moving forward
Leaving you behind
On the road to never mind

You have no say you’re left here
By a woman passing through
Your father gives you your last name
And the rest is up to you
Then one day you see that they
Were simply flying blind
On the road to never mind

An afternoon in Paris
And the color of her hair
It all travels with you
Even things from way back there
Like a winter’s night in England
When a flagless moon was kind
On the road to never mind

I let the anger wash away
In the distant Asian rain
Now all the guessing’s over
Just the questions still remain
But there are dusty names
For all that is enshrined
On the road to never mind

I know I say too many times a day
That I love you
I’m afraid if it’s not said
It ceases to be true
I’ve seen the silence grow
Seen the closest hearts unwind
On the road to never mind

I don’t believe in god
And I never learned to pray
I don’t believe I’ll see the light
Or face a judgment day
There’s no place where faith
Can be safely redefined
On the road to never mind

The past just keeps repeating
With the names and faces changed
They say to protect the innocent
But that’s always sounded strange
May tomorrow look with kindness
On all that we declined
On the road to never mind
On the road to never mind
Never mind…
