lyrics

Do...Do you remember? Do you remember how it felt when you were young and by yourself?
The world was new but you felt old
You were alone and life was cold
In school you were enrolled
You had your dreams and hopes and all was well
All was well

Did...Did you forget? Did you forget what you had learned though it was branded, carved, and burned deep in your memory where you keep all your hopes and plans and dreams and the demons who live deep
What did they take?
What did they take...

Back...Back track
The thread you led through the maze provides a way to keep you safe so don't look back...backtrack

Now...now it seems...now it seems is the time for everything to rewind and for everyone to find comfort in the past that's passed
It's a blast
It's a gas
And when they all are asked
They want the old days back
They like the old ways
They like the backtrack

So...so ask yourself...so ask yourself if it makes sense to grab at that defense when you know how time is spent and you wonder where they went
Where did the days go?
Where did the days go?

Back...back track
Flipping through your book of days, headed for the final page
You can't turn back
Back...back track
A master clock that you obey
and while it makes the music play
Your fate is sealed
