As I'm thrown into an empty room, or should I say a box.
I try to turn around to leave but the door is slammed and locked.
So I sing here and think about all the evil things I've done.
I lost where I was goin', 'cause I forgot where I came from.

I surrender,
Pull my weapons down.
I can't remember,
What I'm doing in this town.
It's time for me to pack my bags,
I will always be alone.
It's the only thing I've ever known,
Is out there on the road.
I'm a drifter.
I'm a drifter.

Now every time I look straight into my fathers eyes.
I see how hurt and broken down he is from all the times.
He had to watch the son he raised follow in his steps.
The only option that he had was to hope for the best.

I surrender,
Pull my weapons down.
I can't remember,
What I'm doing in this town.
It's time for me to pack my bags,
I will always be alone.
It's the only thing I've ever known,
Is out there on the road.

My faith is weak, my soul is bound.
This lonely road I travel down.
I scrape my feet, this jacked ground.
The cuts run deep into me now.
Mother oh, why aren't you here?
So young I was, you disappeared.
I know the truth is ugly, did you ever truly love me?

I surrender,
Curse my mothers soul.
I still miss her,
No matter where I go.
It's time for me to pack my bags, I will always be alone.
The only thing I've ever known, is her broken home.
