Taking to the Road

03:12

Lyrics

 

I wrote myself a riddle

but I didn’t like what it meant

so I poured it into concrete

and made myself cement

 

taking to the road

taking to the road

taking to the road

taking to the road

 

in charcoal dreams of madness

he was a friend of mine

he tried so hard to cover

up the solid double line

 

(chorus)

 

she buried stones and heartache

on a winding stretch of sand

with one eye on the sunset

and a careful steady hand

 

(chorus)

 

it’s time for taking answers

and leaving them to waste

for all my hopes to wander

from out this silly place

 

 

(From the album The Wheel Still In Spin)
