Song Description

The song is about an intense feeling of loneliness to the point where he does not even "...know where this place is". The place being his state of mind and the desolate environment of a Mental Hospital. He thinks about escaping to find comfort in the presence of others.....but he knows he will be found. In his mind, he visualizes holding on to a balloon...sailing higher than a mile...but still there is no one around. No one seems to care. His conclusion..."its a lonely road.....is there and always is".

Lyrics

"Lonely Road" By Andrew Neil Maternick, Feb 2015

Faithfully like autumn's leaves
Label me do as you please
I shut my eyes see all the colors
I say goodbyes to all my lovers

Cause it's a lonely road
It's there and always is
It's a lonely road
I don't know where this place is

Trail of blood
Hound dogs bearing down
Walk through the mud
My tracks always found

My head in the moon
Is it a smile or a frown?
Hold on to a balloon
Higher than a mile no one around
Higher than a mile no one around
Higher than a mile no one around
Higher than a mile no one around
Higher than a mile no one around

Cause it's a lonely road
Is there and always is
It's a lonely road
I don't know where this place is.
