Well I climbed the seven summits
And I swam the seven seas
But the road that I must travel
It's end I cannot see

Well I fought in the jungles
And I fought in the streets
But the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

Once I had a reason
Don't know what it could be
And the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

Well I sang to myself
And I want to be free
But the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

Na na na na na...

Well I walked the empty desert
And was burned in the heat
But the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

Well I crossed the frozen wasteland
And the bitter cold did freeze
And the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

And I will knock on every door
For I do not have a key
And the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

Well I sand to myself
And I wanna be free
But the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

Na na na na na...

He shot a man in So Ho
Couldnt guess his age
I found his empty journal
I filled up every page

I called up my state senator
And they said he wasn't there
The secretary took my name
And man, she sounded scared

So I counted my misfortunes
I added up a blame
I picked through all the garbage
I checked off all the names

I read in the newspaper
They questioned all my friends
They hoped that they could find my ass
Before I struck again

So I sang to myself
That I wanna be free
But the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

So when thirsty I will drink
And when hungry I will steal
But the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

And so tonight I walk in anger
With worn shoes on my feet
And the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

And I'll sing to myself
That I'm gonna be free
But the road I must travel
It's end I cannot see

Na na na na na...

There's a sign along the highway
But it's too dark now to read
