WORDS

THE ROAD YOU’LL RUN

Well, your life so far has been an endless maze.

And you just can’t change other people’s ways.

There’s a world outside of your bent screen-door.

There’s a sea right here. But you’re on the shore.

From this broke-down house of my father's sins.

Where the blacktop ends and the dirt begins.

I think of what I’ve missed and what I don’t know.

And watch the lights go on in the town below.

You’ll leave in the dead of night.

You’ll be good and gone.

When you set out at the start of the road you’ll run.

Just you and the wind and trees.

And you don’t look back.

When you set out at the start of the road you’ll run.

It’s a part of me that I can’t forget.

Like the small black scars from your cigarette.

Where the dishes broke and the words were flames.

And you once believed you were all to blame.

You’ll leave in the dead of night.

You’ll be good and gone.

When you set out at the start of the road you’ll run.

Just you and the wind and trees.

And you don’t look back.

When you set out at the start of the road you’ll run.

You were so quiet. Another deed done in the dark.

When the chain dragged. And down the rabbit hole you spark.

This could be the end now that you’ve begun.

And can you disappear after what you’ve done?

You’ll leave in the dead of night.

You’ll be good and gone.

When you set out at the start of the road you’ll run.

Just you and the wind and trees.

And you don’t look back.

When you set out at the start of the road you’ll run.
