Looking Back At Where He Left

I grew up over there
But I’m afraid to go back

I used to look across this bay
From the other side
And dream about
Taking the road behind me

Getting away from these waters
This state
And going somewhere
Where the petty little local royalty
Had never even been heard of

Now it all seems so pointless
So stupid

I have everything I want

The people there –
They can’t hurt me

But I do not ever want
To go back

It’s a beautiful place
From a distance
At sunset

Let’s just keep it that way
