I'm on a sentimental journey
Into sight and sound
Of no return and no looking back or down
A conscientious objector to the
War that's in my mind
Leaving in the lurch and I'm
Taking back what's mine

I'm on a mission
Into destination unknown
An expedition
Onto desolation road
(where I'm a...)

Castaway-going at it alone
Castaway-now I'm on my own
Castaway-going at it alone
Castaway-now I'm on my own
Lost and found, trouble bound,
Castaway

I'm riding on the night train and
Driving stolen cars
Testing my nerves out on the blvd.
Spontaneous combustion in the
Corners of my mind
Leaving in the lurch
And I'm taking back what's mine

I'm on a mission
Into destination unknown
An expedition
Onto desolation road
(where I'm a...)

Castaway-going at it alone
Castaway-now I'm on my own
Castaway-going at it alone
Castaway-now I'm on my own
Lost and found, trouble bound,
Castaway

    General CommentI think every song on Warning is great. Because it shows that they have grown up and matured, also, the lyrics have gotten less and less about teen angst and girls, to more mature subjects. I love it.
