Well I just can’t seem to pity ‘cause my heart’s to numb to feel
And the smile does all the talking though the pain is all that’s real
With the way that you keep screaming I can hardly hear to think
And I feel the bridges burning underneath my feet

Where do you go, oh, when you’re gone
Where do you go, oh, when you’re gone
Oh, how the road feels so long
But where do you go, oh, when you’re gone

I just want to stay dreaming, no I just don’t want to wake
Why can’t we keep on sailing across this emerald lake
My forehead is still bleeding from the thorns I used to wear
And I’m left alone and beaten for this cross I choose to bear

Where do you go, oh, when you’re gone
Where do you go, oh, when you’re gone
Oh, how the road feels so long
But where do you go, oh, when you’re gone

Well I finally found what I’m looking for
Though the road’s still long and the light is still far
But I finally found what I’m looking for
Well I finally found what I’m looking for
Though the road’s still long and the light is still far
But I finally found what I’m looking for

Well the voices fall like timber and the fear it pours like rain
And my heart is crushed to cinders underneath this kind of pain
Well there is no resolution when the revolution’s dead
So I’m left with no solution for the voices in my head

Where do you go, oh, when you’re gone
Where do you go, oh, when you’re gone
Oh, how the road feels so long
But where do you go, oh, when you’re gone
