Lyrics

My Soul is lost inside its labyrinth again

Round and round the same circles I go

Or I run...down crooked hallways

Oh they’re always closing in

Call it fate or bad luck

Call it home

 

When I was younger

I would dance under the moon

It was a fragile sort of freedom

And I broke it far too soon

If I could find my missing pieces

I would try to heal this wound

I’d ask a lost and lonely man to be my guide

I’d ask Daedalus to build me wings to fly

 

Tell me why I build my castles

So high in the air

Never can reach them way up there

And though I try to build foundations

Under each aspiration

It’s never too long before I’m falling

Through the air

 

Where are the people that I willingly called friend

All the cheap thrills that once filled my soul

I’m never happy with the places that I’ve been

Where I am seems to torture me so

 

As I took twists and turns down life’s inevitable road

It seems I couldn’t resist burning

Every bridge that had led home

And now I’ve only got my restlessness

To cross me as I roam

Asking a lost and lonely man to be my guide

Asking Daedalus to build me wings to fly

 

Tell me why I build my castles

So high in the air

Never can reach them way up there

And though I try to build foundations

Under each aspiration

It’s never too long before I’m falling

Through the air

 

And in my dreams at night

I’m in my castle home

With its court jesters, soldiers and kings

If I could get up there I’d never be alone

But the angels have stolen my wings

 

Tell me why I build my castles

So high in the air

Never can reach them way up there

And though I try to build foundations

Under each aspiration

It’s never too long before I’m falling

Through the air

 

I’m already gone

And now I’m falling

Through the air
