He could tell by the way ???
Seemed to repeat
Caught in a loop of common faith
Endless and complete
A life unsure of its promises
Beyond the daily grind

Oh how he wanted to leave behind
The town and the people there
Bruise of a bully’s stare
Confused and unkind
Row the wreckage right out his mind

The shine of every light he chased
Put a glint in this eyes
But darkness moved his wandering
And cars just passed him by

Out on the edge of town
Thumb in the air
No sign to point the way
No chance that he would stay

Made up his mind
It’s cold when the sun goes down
Dark night cold ground
Hard to survive this way

Only walking backwards slowly
As the rain is falling

Now he moves
He’s only walking backwards slowly
As the rain is falling

x 6 (last two pretty muted)
