I’m shredding all the papers
I’m fixing up the room
I’m throwing all my pictures in the trash
Nothing like starting anew

Packed a bag with new belongings
New passport new ID
And for the first time in a hundred years

I’ll be set free
Forever finally
I’ll still be me in a certain way
Quietly a new identity

Down the street from my new building
‘Cross the water from my past
A face I haven’t seen in years
Catches my eye and laughs

I have to go
Wish I could talk more, but you won’t understand
Maybe I do recognize

And it’s you, it’s you, of course it’s you
But if you could just do one thing for me
There’s a reason that I disappeared
So pretend you never saw me
There’s too much to explain right now but this has been forced on me, oh oh

I could have walked away that day
Now there’s not much I can do
I know they’re getting closer all the time
‘Cause they sent you
