When I go, I go alone
There ain't no one ever looking out for me
Just the sun, my own lean shadow
oh and the wind out among the trees

Home is far beyond long lost horizons
Home I'll never see
For I'll be a prisoner of the road
and I hold no key that will ever set me free

Most humbly on my bending knee
I'm begging you to help me, please
For I'm a prisoner of the road
and I hold no key, I hold no key that will ever set me free

    Song MeaningWell, this one is clear; it is about the refugees. It's from the point of view of a refugee stuck on the road, always on the move, with no hope of ever seeing home again or getting free from this "prison" of his. Very powerful lyrics sung by a great voice.

    It's the main theme of the video clip too and I've heard Sivert in a concert talking about how he drew inspiration about this song from a refugee.
