Highway in Time

When I crossed the line
And realized
I’d left the past behind
It was no big loss

The demons were excommunicated
Sent where they belong
Because I didn’t know it then
But soon they would be gone

Sometimes living is easy
Life like the warm sun in my eyes
Practically pleasing, good to be alive

If the breakdown was fated
Then who knows why
No reason to complain
The full moon still shines

This is the Ice Age

This is the end of a road
Where the polar icecap remains
Sometimes it changes
But basically it stays the same

It’s not an easy place to find
It’s not a place to hide, either
No predators or prey around
Just the missing fire we had

[I play the role I hold] refrain
Who am I today
Criminal, con man or saint
I really couldn’t say
I play the role I stole
Who am I today
Criminal, con man or saint
I really couldn’t say

So take my word on this
For better or worse………
You best believe in the only thing you have
Yourself
