lyrics

Read the post, watch the news
Go to work and pay the dues
Move some paper, push a pen
Stuck outside a dream again
So far away
A million miles or more

And every hour seems to fade
Into days that float away
And so the quiet parade
Marches on

Go to lunch on your own
The waitress there is all alone
Piercing eyes, cold and true
You wonder could you be the glue
That holds her now
She looks so far away

And every hour seems to fade
Into days that float away
And so the quiet parade
Marches on

Negotiations, compromise
The point of view lies in the eye
One by one the bricks pile high
To build the wall that hides the secret life

Get the family on the phone
Another night to stay at home
TV's boring, call a friend
Check the time and turn it in
And drift away
A million miles or more

And every hour seems to fade
Into days that float away
And so the quiet parade
Marches on
