Going Nowhere

from What Kind of World by Joe Benoit

/

lyrics

You threw your cap in the air
And threw caution to the wind
For once in your life you’re having fun
And you hope it’s not a sin

Chorus:
You’re going nowhere
Well at least that’s where you’re from
You’re going nowhere
You know just what you’ll become
Father time is cruel
He don’t care what comes of you
And then someday soon
You’re gonna want to go home

You seemed so excited
As you set out on your own
But the disillusionment set in
The further that you roamed

Chorus:
You’re going nowhere
Well at least that’s where you’re from
You’re going nowhere
And now you’re feeling numb
People can be cruel
They got no time for you
And then someday soon
You’re gonna want to go home

If you change the way you see the world
The world you see can change
Examine your priorities
So you can rearrange

Chorus:
We’re going nowhere
Well at least that’s where we’re from
We’re going nowhere
And to that we’ve all succumbed
Existing can be cruel
We’re just pawns and fools
We feel it too
And we want to go home
