Lyrics

The place I leave behind, in the dust,

Some day I'll reminisce, if I must,

And call up from the past, all I'm hoping to forget,

  The threat of old regrets,

 

The place I leave behind takes your voice,

Conformity a rule, not a choice,

A peg to fit a hole, shaped to someone else's needs,

 Indeed, but now I'm freed,

   

    Run, never look back, grinning as I pack,

    Things that may remind, me of the tedious grind: The place I leave behind,

 

The place I leave behind, with its ghosts,

I learned from them that first and foremost,

That staying put would mean, losing part of what was me,

 Ennui a certainty,

   

    Run never look back, grinning as I pack,

    Things that may remind, me of that tedious grind:

    The place I leave behind,

 

The place I leave behind, finally Is relegated to history,

I've burned a final bridge, linking me to yesterday,

 Okay I'm on my way,

 Nothing left to make me stay,

 I'll take a pass, now it's passe.
