Not long ago, and yet the image is so vague
I hesitate to label it a memory
There was a show of local color and I failed to stray
'Cause I had nothin' to offer but insufficiency

And you know that it's a bitch
When you learn to scratch that itch
A blatant fallibility, sooner to some, but eventually
All kids pointed in the same direction
While the human masses and their vain conceptions
Obliterate each other with impunity
And you wonder, what's in this for me

To another abyss
(To another abyss)
To no avail
(To no avail)
The search is bound to fail
To another abyss
(To another abyss)
To no avail
(To no avail)
So long ago I set sail
And it chills me to the bone
That I'm so far away from home
To another abyss

So what should I do now, what should I celebrate?
Given finite means and a penchant to depreciate
How can I still avow and depend upon a state
That cares nothing for my happiness, welfare, or fate

And I know I can't explain, the commotion in my brain
Like a terrifying reality, de constructed but inadequately
All gets pointed in the same direction
While the human masses and their vain conceptions
Obliterate each other with impunity, and release the weight of history

To another abyss
(To another abyss)
To no avail
(To no avail)
The search is bound to fail
To another abyss
(To another abyss)
To no avail
(To no avail)
So long ago I set sail
And it chills me to the bone
That I'm so far away from home
To another abyss
(Ooh ooh)

So long ago, so long ago
(Ooh ooh)
Oh I set sail
(Ooh ooh)
And I'm struggling on the way
(Ooh ooh)
And I'm waiting for the day
(Ooh ooh)
And I'm looking for the way back home
(Ooh ooh)
(To another abyss)
(Ooh ooh)
So far away
(Ooh ooh)
(To another abyss)
(Ooh ooh)
So far away
(Ooh ooh)
(To another abyss)
(Ooh ooh)
(To another abyss)
(Ooh ooh)
So far away
(To another abyss)
(Ooh ooh)
