I’m a long way from the land that I left
I’ve been running through life and cruising toward death
If you think that I’m scared you’ve got me wrong
If you don’t know my name, you know it now
I belong bodily to the earth
I’m just wearing old bones from those who came first
There are many more flames when mine is gone
They will build me no shrines and sing me no songs
I’m a long way from the one that I loved
I’ve been tending old flames, lamenting what was
Drifting in a land time forgot
If you think that I’ve changed, you know me not
I belong bodily to the earth
I’m just wearing old bones from those who came first
I been unraveling since my birth
Gonna wander out there and see what I’m worth
Find me way out there
There’s no road that will lead us back
When you follow the strange trails
They will take you who knows where
If I found a way
To stay with you tonight
It would only make me late
To a date I can’t escape
