lyrics

The lines are long, but the people they move so fast.
Don't seem to know where they're headed,
these victims may not last through all the feats
that they will have to face outside these walls.
Underpaid and unabashed.

But I know that some people won't forget these days
for what they are worth.
For all you others, watch and learn.

And when I cast off from this land,
I'll think of the people who have shaped me
and made me who I am.
And when I cast off from this land,
I'll think of the people who have saved me
and made me who I am.

So move slow, steady as she goes.
No one knows when the curtains will close on you.
You've got to be selfless, forget your regrets.
Only you will hold the key.
Only we hold the key.

And when I cast off from this land,
I'll think of the people who have saved me
and made me who I am.
And when I cast off from this land,
I'll think of the people who have saved me
and made me who I am.

I don't want to be left alone.
But sometimes alone's the only way to go.
I don't want to be left alone.
But sometimes…

And when I cast off from this land,
I'll think of the people who have saved me
and made me who I am.
And when I cast off from this land,
I'll think of the people who have saved me
and made me who I am.
