Mom stayed up all night
thinking you were dead.
You didn't leave a note
just an unmade bed.

With your pack and Kerouac
you're gonna ride the rails.
Who does that anymore?
Hope you find yourself.

Do you see where it ends?
There's always more around the bend.
It's all too much to comprehend.

So ride
Like it's all that you need.
Like the freedom and speed
could be your air and water.
Go blow with the wind.
To where you've never been.
But please come back again.

Your bed's the desert sand.
Your ceiling's the stars.
Who needs a home
when you've got boxcars?

But you're a stranger here
in a world of train men.
You know you don't belong
cause you ain't one of them.

Cause for you there is an end.
Home is just around the bend.
It's not too much to comprehend.
