To the east, to the east
The road beneath my feet
To the west, to the west
Well I haven't got there yet
And to the north, to the north
Never to be caught
To the south, to the south
My time is running out

Ever since my childhood I've been scared I've been afraid
Of being trapped by circumstance and staying in one place
So I always keep a small bag full of clothes carefully stored
Somewhere secret somewhere safe and somewhere close to the door

Well I've traveled many countries I've washed my feet in many seas
I've drunk with drifters in Vienna and with punks in old dc
And I've driven across deserts driven by the irony
That only being shackled to the the road could ever I be free

To the east, to the east
The road beneath my feet
To the west, to the west
Well I haven't got there yet
And to the north, to the north
Never to be caught
To the south, to the south
Well my time is running out

I've felt old before my time but now I keep the age away
By burning up the miles and yeah by filling up my days
And the nights a thousand nights I've played
And a thousand more to go
Before I take a breath and steal myself
For the next one thousand shows

To the east, to the east
The road beneath my feet
To the west, to the west
Well I haven't got there yet
And to the north, to the north
Never to be caught
To the south, to the south
My time is running out

Yes so saddle up your horses now and keep your powder dry
Cause the truth is you won't be here long
Yeah soon your going to die
To the heart, to the heart,
There's no time for you to waste
You wont find your precious answers now by staying, in one place
Yeah by giving, up the chase

To the east, to the east
The road beneath my feet
To the west, to the west
Well I haven't got there yet
And to the north, to the north
Well I never to be caught
To the south, to the south
My time is running out
Yeah to the south, to the south
My time is running out
Yeah to the south, to the south
My time is running out

I face the horizon everywhere I go
I face the horizon the horizon is my home
I face the horizon everywhere that I go
I face the horizon the horizon is my home
