11. Afterlife (Alternate Version)


Like walking into a
dream, so unlike what
you’ve seen.
So unsure but it seems,
’cause we’ve been
waiting for you.
Fallen into this place, just
giving you a small taste.
Of your afterlife here so
stay, you’ll be back here
soon anyway.
I see a distant light, but
girl this can’t be right.
Such a surreal place to
see so how did this come
to be,
Arrived too early.
And when I think of all
the places I just don’t
belong,
I’ve come to grips with
life and realize this is
going too far.
I don’t belong here, we
gotta move on dear,
escape from this afterlife.
‘Cause this time I’m right
to move on and on, far
away from here.
A place of hope and no
pain, perfect skies with no
rain.
Can leave this place but
refrain, ’cause we’ve been
waiting for you.
Fallen into this place, just
giving you a small taste.
Of your afterlife here so
stay, you’ll be back here
soon anyway.
This peace on earth’s not
right (with my back
against the wall).
No pain or sign of time
(I’m much too young to
fall).
So out of place don’t
wanna stay, I feel wrong
and that’s my sign.
I’ve made up my mind.
Give me your hand but
realize I just wanna say
goodbye.
Please understand I have
to leave and carry on my
own life.
I don’t belong here, I
gotta move on dear
escape from this afterlife.
‘Cause this time I’m right
to move on and on, far
away from here.
Got nothing against you
and surely I’ll miss you.
This place full of peace
and light, and I’d hoped
you might,
Take me back inside,
when the time is right.
Loved ones back home all
crying ’cause they’re
already missing me.
I pray by the grace of
God that there’s
somebody listening.
Give me a chance to be
that person I wanna be.
(Who are you? I’m
broken, I’m choking on
this ecstasy.)
Oh Lord I’ll try so hard but
you gotta let go of me
(Unbreak me, unchain
me, I need another
chance to live.)
[Screaming and maniacal
laughter]
I don’t belong here, I
gotta move on dear
escape from this afterlife.
‘Cause this time I’m right
to move on and on, far
away from here.
Got nothing against you
and surely I’ll miss you.
This place full of peace
and light, and I’d hoped
you might,
Take me back inside
when the time is right.
