The shuffle of feet
Goin' nowhere
Don't mean a thing
No one's there
And the cars in the street
Gettin somewhere
Won't carry me
I'm still stuck here

No Path
No Path

No chain of events
No character arc
No way out this mess
No place to start
I hope for a plan
Then I don't care
When death takes my hand
You won't be there

One thing leads to nothing
No steps to success
No game to win something
No being the best
Failure's a virtue
A safe bet for sure
They'll never meet you
So what's it all for?
