lyrics

Departed


I’ve been trying to ignore,

what lies beyond,

But it comes knocking at my door

Someone much loved will soon be gone.

This road can’t be long enough.

Can’t we take the long way?

Can’t we stop for a drink?

I’m screaming in my head.

Next ride will take us to the top,

but I’m not feeling up.

Eleventh floors not far away,

Then down the hall and to the left.

I see him lying there, but he’s not really here

Looking at him

He’s higher than I’ve ever been.


That man is dying, I see it onscreen.

That news reporter, she’s looking at me.

While we watch it onscreen the drip of him morphine

That man in dying, I watch it on screen.


Phone is ringing off the hook,

she stops to take a look.

Mom is calling and just for a few moments she felt good.

Before she has time to say hi seems its grandpa’s time to die.

Say your final goodbye’s.

Highway seems longer than it’s ever been.

244 kilometers to feel the pain,

And the darkness outside give her no place to hide.

She knows, she’ll never see him again.


That man is dying, I see it onscreen.

That news reporter, she’s looking at me.

While we watch it onscreen the drip of him morphine

That man in dying, higher than I’ve been.
