VERSE 1
Somewhere else
You're always somewhere strange
Alone cold sober in a Coconino condo
Watching the landscape change

And the shifting view means nothing to you
As you contemplate your place in it all
The scene's too dense in the present tense
To ever hear history's call

VERSE 2
Somewhere else
You might as well be there
It really don't matter what space you take up
If you can't find some way to care

And you won't take the chance of upsetting your stance
Or confusing the message you've sent
You're living well in this suburb of hell
Sold your soul to cover the rent

BRIDGE
There's a young man in the mirror
Making plans and dreaming his dreams
While the old man staring back at him
Has forgotten what dreaming means

VERSE 3
Somewhere else
Is where your heart was left
Now you're writing your memoirs in red and green crayon
To give the illusion of depth

But the words on the page keep drifting away
Receding along with your past
You let them leave cuz it's pointless to grieve
When each moment is always your last

Somewhere else
Somewhere strange
