Be On Your Way

Composer Dave Pirner
Length 3:01


Just like the old man in a candy store
The riots across the street
The cold greets the newborn
The neighbors that never meet

No one's making plans here
No one knows for sure
The way to keep it inside
It's just one more door opening for you

And whatever you do
When everything still seems new
It's sure to come to something to change the rest of your life

For a chance to feel normal
But now you're in too deep
Paint some light circles around your eyes
The rest of the world's fast asleep

No sense of direction, no sense at all
No one there to break your fall
No one knows what's happening to you

I never quite got that through
I know what waits for you
And no one calls with something to do with the rest of your life

Stop looking over my shoulder, it wasn't a little boulder
You're going somewhere I might be on your way

This time I don't mean maybe
Nowhere I'd rather be going
If you're coming with me
I might be on your way

I saw you there on the corner
With my name written all over you
I was trying to get your attention
It's all I ever wanted from you

Who will be the victim?
Who will be the host?
Who will you take it out on for not being there
When you needed them most for you?

I'm coming to terms with you
And you can pull me through
I'm settling up with something to change the rest of my life
Something to do with the rest of my life

I need something to feel the rest of my life's not in vain
