Once Made Man

This is the story of a once made man

Who drove across the country in a topless van

He couldn’t drive straight, he turned left on red

And he never pulled over unless for bed

Two black dogs and a stutter and a dream

Of finding out whatever he was meant to be

It could be now but it should have been then

And it won’t stop eating him until he’s dead

He came from an average town you see

He wasn’t that much different from you and me

His life wasn’t small but it wasn’t big

So he hopped on the road to find something

Sees his world through his windshield glass

Cracked in some places and driving past

A field to his left and a city on his right

But he’s buckled in for another long night

And ohhh 

He doesn’t know what he’s chasing

Each day he keeps facing the unknown

And ohhh

He blindly grows

With the winding road

 

Look at him fly, look at headlights pierce the snow

A long ways east of clear blue sky’s, but a short drive home

Anytime now but he lost his way, and who knows where he’ll be

[Where’s your company? Who is he takin’ on this ride?]

With me I don’t know

And ohhh 

He doesn’t know what he’s chasing

Each day he keeps facing the unknown

And ohhh

He blindly grows

With the winding road

So ease yourself for me

Won’t you be so kind, to make me feel

A little less under pressure

In a lot of ways

I could fall here on this road to turn me loose

And send me back up to my home

But I won’t go

I will ride on strong

And ohhh 

He doesn’t know what he’s chasing

Each day he keeps facing the unknown

And ohhh

He blindly grows

With the winding road

And ohhh 

He doesn’t know what he’s chasing

Each day he keeps facing the unknown

And ohhh

He blindly grows

With the winding road
