Written and recorded 2004 for The Search for Satori. I have long since forgotten exactly what I originally wrote the song about, but it still resonates with me somehow.


Would you please tell me which way is up?
I think I've forgotten, I think I never knew
I'm not asking for too much
My desires are quite plain
And now I know why everything I write sounds the same
I think I'm lost but I never want to find my way again

Get on and take a ride
Fly on these lonely wings
Take a flight over vast oceans
Fly away to nowhere
It's so easy to get caught up
To make the same mistakes and never learn
Never understand what went wrong
Crawl on the ground and sink into mud

Follow a path or wander aimlessly
Alone yet in company
Just how it always is
You know your friends
Or you thought you did
Go away and come back to find
Nothing's quite the same anymore
People change, you can't deny
They always says to keep on going
Just tell me what you think you'll find at the end
