        Today I spent awhile
        In a world I’d left behind
        I knew what I was doing
        But I didn’t change my mind
        I could have turned around
        In fact I did one time
        But in the end I caved
        And returned to do the crime
        I entered my old haunt
        It hadn’t changed a bit
        No sunlight reached inside
        It scared me I admit
        The old familiar ways
        I fell back in the pattern
        I chose my first machine
        The wheels began to chatter
        The lights the sounds the feel
        It was just as I’d left it
        But something wasn’t right
        Something was wrong…decrepit
        No pleasure came to me
        I saw it was just a machine
        There was no magic to it
        In fact it felt unclean
        I was winning here and there
        But it didn’t make me smile
        I looked around and saw
        Only people in exile
        Exiled from their lives
        Escaping in a lie
        What was I trying to do?
        I stopped, I breathed, I sighed
        This world I used to crave
        Was strange, unknown, unkind
        I didn’t want to stay
        I left and cleared my mind
        For 15 minutes that day
        I wandered back in time
        But the world I used to know
        Is now forever left behind
