We grabbed a piece of driftwood
Hold on tight and please don't let go

We'll follow the waves to the nearest shoreline
Wake up to the coast of some distant island in the South Pacific
Leave behind everything we once had
A brand new start with no one to tell us what to do
Tomorrow will tell us that we can make it too
And if that doesn't work you say
We'll flip a quarter and find a new place to go
Heads Kansas City, tails California

Never again stay within the boundaries of this town
Step outside the barrier
And I don't want to be the follower anymore
So take this string from out my back and let my feet be free again
I might stumble when I walk but at least I am on my own
And I won't say that it's the last time...
It's the last time

    General Commentwow dudes im the very first one to post on this song? thats friggin cool. These guys are great, awesome band. I just wish i knew how i could get one of their cd's. This song is just about doing something that you have never done before and you are kinda not too sure about it, but you are gonna do it anyways. hence the line,"i might stumble when i walk but i least i am on my own." Right on amigos
