halfway there lyrics – soundgarden

halfway there

i woke up with my feet nailed down
and my head moving the speed of sound
had a dream i was caught in a maze
and i couldn’t find my way back out
some were born to move mountains around
and some to rot away in jail
i get an itch and when i am scratching
everything can go to h*ll

and how far is halfway there?
i didn’t see you on the trail
did almost become good enough?
should a good life be so hard won?
is that what our dreams have become?

sometimes when you’re shooting an arrow
it can fly across the sky so proud
i would go all the way to the sun
if i didn’t have to come back down

and how far is halfway there?
i didn’t see you on the trail
did almost become good enough?
should a good life be so hard won
is that what our dreams have become?

have you got a car?
somewhere to sleep?
someone who loves you?
something to eat?
i would say you’re doing better than most
though maybe not as well as some

and how far is halfway there?
i didn’t see you on the trail
did almost become good enough?
should a good life be so hard won?
is that what our dreams have become?
is that what our dreams have become?
