Sands of Time

What you're reading is in my world,
My impressions, as my world unfurls,
I guess I need you to notice the lines
To feel belonged in the sands of time.

The trail I leave is the letters learned,
The alphabet used, and  the way of the words,
For those who encode just what they say,
I'm in love with you today.

I have the gall to believe that I might
Have words worth more than the paper on which I write.
Who am I with something to say?
Why would you believe me anyway?

All I can do is leave my track.
Leave it for me and keep looking back,
On what I meant, what time and why?
To see if I'm a smarter guy.

Maybe some way I've made words of worth,
that can guide your way across the earth
in some kind of better way,
To help you better understand today.

There is no ledge to knowledge.... no,
The more I travel I see it's so,
But I watch the trails of many men 

I watch them as they get filled back in again, with sand.

Where I'll Roam

I'm one hundred miles gone,
one hundred down the road,
and I might not make it back,
Lord knows where I'll roam.

I've had thirty cigarettes today,
only three more to go,
I'll buy another pack,
somewhere down that road.

I'm forgetting where I've been,
with so many places I go,
have I gotten off my track?
Lord knows where I'll roam.

So I guess I'll stick out my thumb,
or I'll find another phone,
with a whiskey in my pack,
I'll never be alone.

When the night is getting dark,
and the lights come on the road,
I forget where I am,
and don't care where I go.

I'm not my folks and friends,
I'm not my boyhood home,
I'm a traveller on a track,
lord knows where I'll roam.

I have no need for time,
so I'll smoke, drink, and get stoned,
I don't care who I am,
just leave me alone.

I have stepped out of line,
do not own or get owned,
but I'll trade you this for that,
lord knows where I'll roam.

There's some kind of reason,
I don't care to know,
I do not care for that,
the road is my home,
who knows where I'll roam.
