Walking down some highway midnight North Dakota Somewhere 'round late fall I knew that the time Has come for me I'm willing a million stars above me I tried to catch their fall I tried to catch their fall
Inside I felt so empty A stranger to this world so lost And as the winter draws I'm turning north
I'm leaving things behind I just don't need The only things in life of worth are free To anyone's who's heard the call And turned and walked away
I've traveled too long on my own I've got a dream of home Safe at last...
Where are all the answers And visionary wisdom From the stately and esteemed? Just as I thought... Disconsolate I ponder The evil human nature And what it really means For the ones who paved the way
No bag of gold can save their souls It's like they never feared But now their end is near The flames start leaping
Baby don't it drop you to your knees? The only thing in life of worth is free To anyone's who's heard the call And turned and run away
Despite this nasty world I roam Imagine going home Ghost of a chance
