Gain Something New

Putting his old life up onto a shelf
Stepping out of the world he made for himself
He has a suitcase in his hand, and a ticket for the train
Tapping his foot nervously, and looking down the tracks toward his fate

He has his hair like he just got out of a fight
His shirt is a size too big and his shoes aren't tied
He has a cross around his neck, hasn't prayed to God in years
Serving as a promise - the things you throw away don't disappear

Looking in the distance, he sees the setting sun
Illuminate the city he never learned to love
He shuts his eyes and turns around, he's got nothing left to do
To give something up is to gain something new
