Burn the bridges, and touch fire to the Santa Maria
Burn the islands, let them smolder beneath us
Burn the blueprints, never able to build either.

Burn them all down, then send strong winds to sweep us
Burn the bridges, and touch fire to the Santa Maria
Burn the islands, let them smolder beneath us
Burn the sawmills, never able to build either.

Burn the ashes, then send strong winds to sweep us.

I'm not going back,
I'm never going back,
I'm not going back,
No I'm never going back.

I'm not going back,
I'm never going back,
I'm not going back,
No I'm never going back.

Well I love my circle, won't you make it wider,
And I love my home, cause you're the home provider,
I love my wife, she ain't no home divider.
I'll never reconsider, let me run this by you, I'll run this by you.

I'm not going back,
I'm never going back
I'm not going back,
No I'm never going back.

I'm not going back,
I'm never going back,
I'm not going back,
No I'm never going back.

All the methods of my escape have gone away,
Then I give my motives to cash 'em in, like Saturday, Saturday.
All the moments of my escape are going up in flames,
Then I give my father ever need him just slipped away, slipped away, slip away.

All the methods of my escape have gone away,
Then I give my motives to cash 'em in like Saturday, Saturday.
All the moments of my escape are going up in flames,
Then I give my father ever need him, just slipped away, slipped away.

I'm not going back,
Never going back,
I'm not going back,
No I'm never going back.

I'm not going back,
I'm never going back,
I'm not going back,
No I'm never going back.

I'm not going back,
I'm never going back,
I'm not going back,
No I'm never going back

    General CommentThe lyrics are "thought of ever needing them" not "father ever need him". I just checked the lyrics book from the album.
