Zzyzx Rd. – Stone Sour

This is absolutely one of top 10 favorite song for many years now. It’s all about the words. And the piano too. But the words, they made me think about hopes lost, death and letting go. By no means a happy song, but the desperation and at the same time the determination, in a very odd way it’s strikingly beautiful.

I don’t know how else to put this
It’s taken me so long to do this
Falling asleep and I can’t see straight
My muscles feel like a melee
My body’s curled in a U-shape
I put on my best but I’m still afraid

Propped up by lies and promises
Saving my place as life forgets
Maybe it’s time I saw the world
I’m only here for a while
But patience is not my style
And I’m so tired that I gotta go

What am I suppose to hide now?
What am I suppose to do?
Did you really think I wouldn’t see this through?
Tell me I should stick around for you
Tell me I could have it all
I’m still too tired to care and I gotta go

I get to go home in one week
But I’m leaving home in three weeks
They throw me a bone just to pick me dry
I’m following suit and directions
I crawl up inside for protection
I’m told what to do and I don’t know why

I’m over existing in limbo
I’m over the myths and placebos
I don’t really mind if I just fade away
I’m ready to live with my family
I’m ready to die in obscurity
‘Cause I’m so tired that I gotta go

Where am I suppose to whine now?
What am I suppose to do?
You still don’t think I’m going see this through
Tell me I’m a part of history
Tell me I can have it all
I’m still too tired to care and I gotta go

Still too tired to care, I gotta go
I’m still too tired to care, I gotta go
