Ambling Toward the Unknown 5

Lyrics > Ambling Toward the Unknown 5

STATE ROAD 55

I
I’VE BEEN DRIVING FOR A WHILE DOWN STATE ROAD 55
SPEED LIMIT AIN’T POSTED AND THERE’S NO PLACE TO HIDE
THE AIR IS GETTING THINNER…MY EYES IN A BLUR
IS THERE A WAY TO GET OFF OR AM I TRAPPED IN THIS WORLD?

II
I LOOK IN THE REAR VIEW MIRROR AND WHAT DO I SEE
…COUPLE IN THE NEXT CAR THEY ARE LAUGHING AT ME
…DON’T SEE WHAT’S SO FUNNY, THERE’S NOTHING AWRY
I’D ENTERTAIN THEM WITH A FINGER BUT I’M NOT THAT KIND OF GUY

CHORUS 1
I MISSED MY CONNECTION A LONG TIME AGO
THEY SENT ME TO THIS PLACE, “IT’S THE ONE WAY TO GO”
 (IT) SEEMS THERE’S NO DIRECTION OR ANY WAY HOME
THIS ROAD MOVES IN CIRCLES AND I’M ON MY OWN

III
ON A TUESDAY IN THE AUTUMN, THE WINDS OF CHANGE BLEW DOWN
…DROVE THIS GOD FORSAKEN ROAD IN THE LONELY PART OF TOWN
MY FRIENDS THEY WERE ANGRY, OUR LESSONS WERE LOST
STRADDLING DOWN THE MIDDLE, WE PAID A FRIGHTENING COST

CHORUS 2
THE ROUTE SEEMED SHORT WHEN I ENTERED LONG AGO
THINGS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM I CAN’T TAKE IT ANY MORE
DID I MISS MY EXIT…WHY CAN’T I CONSULT A MAP?
 …GOT NO GPS I THINK I SET MYSELF A TRAP

IV
AMBLING TOWARD THE UNKNOWN AND REACHING FOR THE SKY
WHEN I RAN FROM THIS DESPARATE PLACE I TOLD MYSELF A LIE
I SAID I’D FACE MY DEMONS, THE GHOSTS WITHIN MY SOUL
WELL MY SPIRIT IT WAS BROKEN AND I’S ABOUT TO FOLD

CHORUS 3
GOODBYE, HELLO, SEEM LIKE SIMPLE WORDS OF TRANSITION
OF VOYAGE AND MOVEMENT, SOMETIMES INDECISION
A LONG FAREWELL OR A LINGERING HELLO
I WALKED AWAY FROM CERTAINTY I’VE GOT NO PLACE TO GO

V (INSTRUMENTAL)

CHORUS 4
SIGNS AND ARROWS ARE MEANT TO POINT THE WAY
THE ROAD TO SALVATION IS THE ONE THAT ISN’T PAVED
I SAW MY FRIEND ANTONIO HE WAS WALKING DOWN THE STREET
HE SAID “YOU CAN COME HOME NOW, JUST PICK UP YOUR SPEED”

VI
I’VE BEEN DRIVING FOR A WHILE DOWN STATE ROAD 55
A MAN I SAW HE TOLD ME “JUST BURY YOUR HEAD AND HIDE
DON’T LET THE GHOSTS AROUND YOU TELL YOU WHAT TO DO
VERY OFTEN THE TRUTH COMES FROM THE MOUTHS OF FOOLS”.

CHORUS 5 - INSTRUMENTAL

VII (INSTRUMENTAL)
