There's a long highway in your mind
The spirit road that you must find
To get you home to peace again
Where you belong my love lost friend

When you're alone
You cheat yourself
You paint yourself in a dark, dark place

You get your shoes
And get your hat
Get out here while you still can
There's nothin' right that you can say
You keep on talkin' anyway and everyone seems to turn on you
There's nothing right that you can ever do

Spirit road
Spirit road
Spirit road
Spirit road

Now you're on that long highway in your mind
The spirit road that you had to find
You're headed home to peace again
Where you belong my love lost friend

You stop to eat
You start to drink
But you don't stop and you don't think
You lost your keys
You're on your knees
You're on your back and lookin' up in the trees

And the night swirls for a little girl
A speck of dust in the giant world
There's a spirit road that you must find
A long highway in your mind

Spirit road
Spirit road
Spirit road
Spirit road

There's a long highway in your mind
The spirit road that you must find
To get you home to peace again
Where you belong my love lost friend

Don't feed that snake
That turns on you
You starve it out, that's what you do

And it makes you lie
It makes you cheat
It steals your shoes and cuts your feet

The snake keeps feeding through the night
You lose your soul without a fight
There's nothin' right that you can say
You keep on talkin' anyway

There's a long highway in your mind
The spirit road that you must find
Peace again
Peace again

There's a long highway in your mind
The spirit road that you must find
To get you home to peace again
Where you belong my love lost friend

When you're alone
You cheat yourself
You paint yourself in a dark, dark place

Get your hat
Get your shoes
Get out here while you still can still choose

Spirit road
Spirit road
Spirit road
Spirit road

Spirit road
Spirit road
Spirit road
Spirit road
