Asking For Directions

by alexrambler

I never said, I didn’t know

What was going through my mind

I guess I’m just kinda’ slow

In letting others know what I find


Even as I keep on moving

It’s hard to comprehend

What is this evil doing

Coming from around the bend


By my side there’s countless others

Whom also have been down

I’d just like to tell them

That they are redemption down


There’s something, I must tell you

Some thing’s been haunting me

I’ve been acting like a fool

Doing things you can’t believe


You know, I’ve been looking back now

For quite some time

And it’s hard to figure out

Every single burned dime


When I tell you it’s a pain

You’d better believe it’s true

I was hijacking my brain

Always walking with ragged shoes


So now I’m pledging to you

To help me outta’ this old road

Someday, it shall come true

I’ll walk tall carrying my load


And I find hope in the little things

In the dawn of a new day

In the most spirited workers

Toiling their life away


I’m a-seeking some guidance

Asking someone to assist

To help me out of this deadly dance

Walk me out of this thick mist


I’m standing by a crossroad

Can’t decide where to turn

On my backs a heavy load

Of all the bridges that I’ve burnt


It’s a sad story to be true

A bitter, twisted tale

Something reserved by a few

To live it and then walk away


Now I can hear that echo of despair

And I travel simply to forget

I’d tell you where I’m going but I don’t know where

I’m stopping soon to catch my breath
