Stop and stare
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I’ve become what I can’t be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you’re ‘here’ not there
And you’d give anything to get what’s fair
But fair ain’t what you really need
Oh, can u see what I see

This town is colder now, I think it’s sick of us
It’s time to make our move, I’m shakin off the rust
I’ve got my heart set on anywhere but here
I’m staring down myself, counting up the years
Steady hands, just take the wheel…
And every glance is killing me
Time to make one last appeal… for the life I lead

Stop and stare
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I’ve become what I can’t be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you’re ‘here’ not there
And you’d give anything to get what’s fair
But fair ain’t what you really need
Oh, can u see what I see

They’re tryin to come back, all my senses push
Un-tie the weight bags, I never thought I could…
Steady feet, don’t fail me now
Gonna run till you can’t walk
But something pulls my focus out
And I’m standing down…

Stop and stare
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I’ve become what I can’t be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you’re here not there
And you’d give anything to get what’s fair
But fair ain’t what you really need
Oh, you don’t need

What u need, what u need…

Stop and stare
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I’ve become what I can’t be
Oh, do u see what I see…

    I feel this song is very melancholic. It is both sad and full of life to me.

    The words in it seem to call out to me, and I feel as if I can relate to it. To me, the chorus draws me the strongest.

    I keep on fighting in life, keep on making steps forward, every step is a struggle. I keep going, I keep striving, but I am here and not there. I wish I could get what’s fair in life. Nothing ever came easy for me. Everything that had been gotten was through hard work and effort. And the return is so little alot of times compared to the effort. But there is no other way, but to keep trying, keep running.

    So, I always wonder why does it seem I keep on moving, but it seems I go nowhere. I become what I can’t be. I never went with my heart, and just did what I wanted to do. I always weighted the consequences, the choices, the variables. Happenings in life also affected my choices. Sometimes, I didn’t have choices.I have become what I can’t be.

    But I keep running, steady hands still on the wheels, steady feet hadn’t failed me, I keep on running, I keep on moving but I go nowhere. I do sometimes feel scared. What will the future hold for me. There’s no guarantee. I want to be free from the social economic system that binds all of us. I keep fighting, but I am still enslaved.

    Someday, I will be free.
