Road, lift your heels
I come up empty
Road, stretch your arms
so you can send me

Twist your cap on tighter
Kiss these tired knees goodnight
And take me away from here

Road, lift your eyes
I don't come easy
I squeezed and dwarfed in size
So no one sees me

A lark, a laser shot and gone
I carry half my years in songs
But I'm not the problem here

(la la la la la la la la la)

Angels of my past
I ask you humbly
The scrapers pierce the skin,
the blood goes bumbling
And all is guts and go light greens
Show me once what being alive now means

And I'll drop and anchor
I will be thankful
I will be someone there.
