We move away
But the only things that change are the names of the states
What stays the same
Would march persistantly over any terrain
Through snow or rain
New England winter skies are always gray
As if to say don't wait
They're gonna find you, keep on moving, you're never safe

We make and stake
Our identity on one lousy thing we say
So escape from fate
You've only got one life, you better live it your way

I don't want to walk a mile
In someone elses shoes
I've only got one pair that fit
And they're still as good as new
So I'm lacing up my sneakers
And I'm going to hit the road
I'll tell you where I've been, but not where I'll go

We make mistakes
But never stick around to hear it's okay
So we run so far away
To a brand new set of problems we'll have to face

I don't want immortality
But I'd like the guarantee
That when I die eventually
My eulogy will read
You don't have to keep running
Man you've finally found your peace
We wish you'd stuck around
But you had to leave
