Way Back Inn

I've been through hell
And come out the other side
I've got nothing left to sell
And nothing left to hide
When the truth can tell
It'll say I've lived a lie

I'm alive in the tomb
Looking for a room
In the Way Back Inn
Looking for a way back in

In the same lifetime
I've been two different men
Both lives have been mine
One is now, one was then
The two lives combined
Add up to my amends

I can't name my drug of choice
No name would be as sweet
As the echo of the devil's voice
At the dark end of the street
The dead silence in the noise
Captures me completely

I wasn't present in your future
You won't find me in your past
My promise of love was clever
It wasn't made to last
It's always wrong to say forever
And never always comes too fast
Looking for a way back in

The toughest walk one man can take
Is when he sets out to find
The lessons of his mistakes
And the life he must leave behind
The journey must be taken
One step at a time

I'm alive in the tomb
Looking to make a move
Into the Way Back Inn
Looking for a way back
Way back in
Looking for a way back
Way back in
Looking for a way back in
