one prairie outpost lyrics – carbon leaf

not been here since i was a boy
the sky unwrapped, the world my toy
a movie reel a million miles long
on and on…

scene after scene p*sses by my life
the window’s a wound. the road is a knife
the irony, ask me, ‘where have you been?’
i don’t know, i don’t know
because i don’t know where to begin

too much to do, too much to see
pictures to take, people to meet
when there’s so much sp*ce in between
it overwhelms me

scene after scene p*sses by my life
the window’s a wound. the road is a knife
the irony, ask me, ‘where have you been?’
i don’t know, i don’t know
because i don’t know where to begin

not been here since i was a boy
now heart full of fear and a mask of painted joy
so much for these youthful eyes to see
so much for peace and tranquility

one prairie outpost, you are how i feel…
alone in a flatland ‘tween the dream and the real
the irony, ask me, ‘where have you been?’
i don’t know, i don’t know
because i don’t know where to begin
i don’t know where to begin
