I can't look into the future, but I can't cheat the past
I will wipe away my memory, I will find freedom at last
I will walk away from everything that I used to want so bad
I can't look into the future, but the future is the only thing I have
The only thing I have

I am standing on the pavement, I am staring at a sign
A cheaper flight to paradise I am told I'll never find
There are cameras on the rooftops, there are crazies on the green
I will jump a plane to any place far enough away to get me out of who I've been
Get me out of who I've been

I have shaken, never bitten, every hand that ever hit me
Time has taken what it wanted, now I'm gonna get my victory
With my last cheap shot at the dream

I can't look into the future, but I can't cheat the past
I will wipe away my memory, I will find freedom at last

I can't look into the future, but I know I don't wanna see
Another day in Hell with all the mediocrities
I will walk away from everything that the world wants me to do
I can't look into the future, but the future's where I'm walking to
I'm walking to
