How many days can you stay away,
Before someone knows that you're gone?
How long can you stay,
Before you miss moving on?

Songs, spinning wheels, and cracked windshields,
White lines and sage
Open mouths and empty ears
Years they pass like days

My god, my god
When it's time to move on
And on and on
When is nothing enough?

How much loss can you take before you break?
How much hunger 'til you starve?
How much excess 'til there is nothing at all?
How much freedom can you hold?

My god, my god
When it's time to move on
And on and on
When is nothing enough?
