I suppose that I do pray, just not in the usual way
It's to the clock when it's 11:11,
that somehow it will take me back to a place
where I feel alive again, but I don't see it happening

I hate where I am, I'm stuck and I can't
I long for where I've been, but can't go there again
And I'd say if this is all there is, then I don't want it,
but I know it's not, so I'll keep moving

I just go from feeling fed up to feeling nothing at all
There's a difference between life
and feeling like you're really living it

The world is watching, but it's not watching me
