"And then..."

Left my tie in the trash can
At the Chevron down the street
Dropped my badge in the mailbox
Let it bake in the heat

Because I'm not going back again
Finally reached the end
Seeing the dawn, carrying on
And then...

Passed my exit in the fast lane
Didn't turn my head
Everything I'm leaving behind
Is already dead

Life isn't over
I've still got today
And all of the past is
Beginning to fade away
