lyrics

I've been searching, I've been searching a long time
Oh I've tried to feel a home down under my shoes
We've been drifting, we've been driving a long time
Freedom only finds you when there's nothing to lose

Skies are clear, they're dry as a bone
As the road becomes my home
I don't fear the great unknown
Oh, I'm used to being on my own
The ship has sailed, the bird has flown
No more future set in stone
And as the record's always shown
Oh, I'm probably better off alone

I’ve been pushing, I’ve been pushing a long time
Trying to keep these empty days from dragging me down
We’ve been breaking, we’ve been breaking a long time
Oh, this wishing well has kept me under the ground

Skies are clear, they're dry as a bone
As the road becomes my home
I don't fear the great unknown
Oh, I'm used to being on my own
The ship has sailed, the bird has flown
No more future set in stone
And as the record's always shown
Oh, I'm probably better off alone

Don’t come here crying when it all comes falling down
No use for flying when you’re tongue-tied to the ground
Sweet hesitation, sweet emancipation
No, you won’t see me crawling backwards

Skies are clear, they're dry as a bone
As the road becomes my home
I don't fear the great unknown
Oh, I'm used to being on my own
The ship has sailed, the bird has flown
No more future set in stone
And as the record's always shown
Oh, I'm probably better off alone
