Lyrics

Wake up late in a state of glazed haze
I shuffle my feet round to the floor
Slid on an old coat and head out into the maze
Sinking before i left the door

No-one knows im gone
as i stare up to the sun
and my mind becomes undone

A Distant driver in his over worn shirt
These zombie like people all heading to their work
The place for those who have nothing else to be
This bus of undead all with nothing left to see

I know my words they wont come out,
although my mouth wants to scream and shout
As my head spins round and round

Its just one more goodbye
as i step onto a train with a belly full of lead
One last goodbye
but this day its not ours,its for smiles from the dead

Darkness falls as the smiles begin to fade
A sign from a father in the strangest of ways
One thing ive learnt in this life still to be
A smile from a daughter can help your eyes to see

As our time is wearing thin,
and you cant keep sadness in,
our old lives must begin,

Its just one more goodbye
as i step onto a train with with the thoughts of all we said
One last goodbye
but this day its not ours,its for smiles from the dead

One last goodbye
but this day its not ours,its for smiles from the dead
