Lyrics

Searching for peace of mind, but there's only pieces to find. Shattered glass that covers my floor. I stare at my reflections, perfected fabrications and I know that I have grown so far from home.

Far from those old Georgia roads where I have skipped several stones. Pebbles I should have kept in my hands. With every new geography I'm switching my philosophy trying so hard just to understand.

Let's understand.

All the pockets of the world you know how mystery swirls. Is God an angry kid and are we playing his games? Was man meant for divinity? Is there truth inside a trinity? Is death a playground or an empty cave?

I'll try and keep my cool. Won't let these questions rule. Ideas always end in more doubt. I wanna sail the universe in a purple colored hearse and come back to tell you what it's all about. Oh I'll come back to tell you what it's all about.

But I can attest that there's something left, when the whole world is losing its mind. My compass is set for those highway treads to take me somewhere. Take me out of my head.

Watched a street preacher yell. He said, "You sinners burn in hell!" And all the people gathered around. He was sicking off his scriptures like a pack of wolves in winter, but the hounds the were protected from the sound. A melody blocked the words, the whistled wind of the world, the possibilities in the air. And the aura of his mystery erased his pious history. A burden that the poor man had to bare.

A burden that the poor man had to bare.
