I taste the grit of the sand in my mouth

and I know I never wanna go home again

I seen the bottle rockets burstin' in the sky like stars

and I know I'm never goin' home again

It's been a long time since home was a place that meant

more than where I laid my head

and I'm not worried about all the things I own

I'll just burn 'em and walk away again

I don't really know what else to say

We're all gonna die this way

so pack your bags

let's all walk away

I'm gettin' back on the road because home is just

just another word for where I lay my head

I've got some friends and they are leavin' too

we're gonna chase this dream until the bitter end


I've never ridden trains without a ticket but

but that don't mean I ain't as free as you

and maybe money means more to me than it does to you

but at least I ain't spangin' on the street

So stranger won't you put another dollar in the hat

we're just tryin' to make it to the next town

and maybe if we have a little extra we'll buy ourselves a drink

because that's all we really want
