Here it comes along the E4
Through open forests, closed fields
Train yards know and so do factories
Quite a few will be let go

Supermarket, I wait outside
Waiting for doors to slide
Let us in there’s so much to buy
So little money so much time
To regret a lifetime

Broken spirit and heart is plucked apart
We just pay and leave
Weren’t raised to make a scene
For what it is worth I wasn’t redundant from birth

Here it comes along the E4
Through open forests, closed fields
Train yards know and so do factories
Quietly we will let go
Away from home we realized
It was set to ruin our lives
Under the pines and out of reach
From the summer’s heat
We decided that if we got away
We would never look back or become like them

Can you move that arm or did it break?
I ran away crying
That’s what family life did to us
Learned to be aware of who to trust

Since we are worthless can you blame us
Now that we are worthless you can blame us
Cause we are sentenced no matter what we do
We tried to outrun it but somehow we always knew

Near the old bridge
We lied down
Wearing our very best
Felt real good to see you again
Knowing we had put the worst to rest
Was the last we saw of each other
No regrets this time but always on my mind

Since we are worthless can you blame us
Now that we are worthless you can blame us
Cause we are sentenced no matter what we do
We tried to ignore it but somehow we always knew

Nobody cares about what has been done to us
By those no longer around
Nobody cares and we don’t mind
We kick back

Since we are worthless can you blame us
Now that we are worthless you can blame us
Cause we are sentenced no matter what we do
In the end alone, somehow I always knew
 
Made you feel ashamed of your background
You went home to go to sleep
Through your neighborhood as you always would
You went to sleep to feel at home

Took it inside, held it for a while
A day without waves, carefree and not enraged
Could it make life bearable
I wonder although I’ve already been told
No

Find it hard to feel welcome
For as long as I can remember I’ve already been told
Go

Find it hard to rise above anger
Far as I can remember I’ve already been told
Grow

Fear eats the soul and hatred its own
While everybody’s safe at home
Cutting meaning off from less even if not caressed
Going to what matters

A day without waves not asking to be saved
Could love make life bearable
I wonder although I’ve already been shown
