I been walkin' down the road
What it means I dunno
I been walkin' down the highway
With the bad food flyin by me
I' m an ordinary man
With a time bomb in my hand
It keeps tickin' an I keep runnin
Tryin to find out where I come from
And there ain' t nothin' gonna take this road away
Nothin' gonna take this road away
Nothin' gonna take this road outta my heart
Nothin' gonna take this pain outta my heart

I wake up sweatin in the night
Every town is only lights
I 'm addicted to the highway
''cause I just can' t do things their way
And there ain' t nothin gonna take this road away
Nothin gonna take that road away
Nothin gonna take that road outta my heart

Highway i' m doin fine
You help me draw the line
No use in bein alive
If i' m just rentin
I undersand the circus well
I' ve played the clown when down he fell
But bein' down ain' t bein' loser
So just look out here comes a bruiser
And there ain 't nothin gonna take my road away
Nothin' gonna take my road away
Nothin' gonna take my road outta my heart
