lyrics

I got this postcard in the mail, all the way from Colorado
Says they’ll find me that place in the sun (said they’ll take me there)
But only if I jump behind the right man to follow
And work until my days here are done

I signed my name down as a servant of the violence
But when they come, I’ll throw their rifles to hell (and they can leave them there)
Cause I won’t be a part of this advertised alliance
They won’t pay me to leave as a shell

Hey now, there's a right path to take but we just don’t know how
Hey now, futures pass me by while I’m dancing on the side of the road

A man stands alone on the corner of the street
Is he asking for a little bit of change?
I said, “I’d give you what I have in my pockets man
but the world would not rearrange”

So I drove my car back to the market
To buy a bottle of some child’s sweat
I can’t tell you what’s in it but he’s nameless and distant
So I’ll put some cash where his shackles are kept

Hey now, there's a right path to take but we just don’t know how
Hey now, futures pass me by while I’m dancing on the side of the road

When you left behind the rain, it was diluted with your kisses
Was that the only thing that kept me here?
Should I put that all behind to be an implant of the vision
and lose myself in all of my fears?

But these winding mountain trails: they are my temple and my riches
As long as I can stand on my feet
There’s a life there on the pavement with the big mens’ broken business
But that’s not the one I’d like to see

Hey now, there's a right path to take but we just don’t know how
Hey now, futures pass me by while I’m dancing on the side of the road
