(Verse)

Northwest is where I'm headed,
Underneath the golden sky
I'm searching for a wisdom
That every man seeks to find
I've got wicked thoughts a brewin'
Many even deeds I've done
I'm looking for a reason
For a reason not to run

(Chorus) x2

I've always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance

(Verse)

I've got no destination
No place to call my own
I'll explore the constellations
Till I find the course I mean to hone
But come fever or come famine
Come the biting winter cold
Just put two coins upon my eyelids
So I can pay the poor man's toll

(Chorus) x2

I've always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance

(Bridge)

I've been so unforgiving
Stranded in old traditions

(Chorus) x2

I've always been dark
With light somewhere in the distance
