I left in search of pieces
to a puzzle I had drawn
I walked alone for miles,
through many nights and many dawns
I played this game - thought I was winning
but then I found out I was the pawn.
Every night I close my eyes and try
to fight through memories but I don't remember why
I checked into a small town,
I'll tell you what they found in my head
Empty space like canvas, a couple good thoughts—
but most were dead.
They told me I was wrong now, and that I must leave town,
but with a smile I said.
Broken all my ties.
Free from all my fears and self made lies.
Don't take me as wise
for all I've found is
Found in open skies—
Open minds can't run off loveless greeds
Can't run off the guise
Which foresakes that we are one.
They strung me up by my toes,
I been tippin' the gallows way too long
Still ain't got no friend by my side, take that shit in stride
and carry on
Just keep walking down this same road
only one I've known
sing my song
