lyrics

I've been living by the light of each day
Sleeping the soft nights slowly away
I've been keeping to the backwoods as much as I can
A thousand acres ain't enough space for one man
With a fishing pole and a frying pan

It's been good to be under only my own weight
And losing lures in some mountain state
'round here it's cool, warm when the sun's high
Back home it's hot and the corn's chest-high
For keeping an eye, I'll bake my homies pie

These days I tend to wind my way with the wind like dust that settles in just to get pulled off again
Where did I come from? Where will I go?
How'd I end up in this grove of madrone
It's been days since I thought of home

I'm single and I smell, thumbing my way from here to the next watering well
But if I had a housey honey, I could shit shower and shave without spending money
But as that ain't quite the way it is
I'll content myself to this tent under the bridge

I've got a whole lot of who knows what left to find
Been clearing out my mind, time for redesign
I've set myself towards liberation
Traveling as living and not just vacation
I'm seeing for myself this sedation nation
I'm seeing for myself this sedation nation
