I Went to Minnesota Not to Be Alone (I Lost My Way Home)

This song is by Their Teeth Will Be of Lions and appears on the album True Stories Are Harder to Make Up (2010).

Too many faces throughout all those places I've traveled alone
So lone, never lone, no, always alone
With my trusty backpack strapped to my back
I kiss a photo of my mother dearest, God rest her soul
She died all alone, don't die alone

Don't we die all alone?
Don't we die all alone?
Don't we die all alone?
Don't we die all alone?

Fears and tears of my past, I never wanna go back
Fears and tears of my past, I never wanna look back
I begged and pleaded, "Please don't take me there"
Watch me cry all alone, no one seems to care
No one seems to care
Plant your rhubarb and dig your own grave
Tie your own shoes and mend those old socks
My grandfather's clock stopped, tick tick tock

All these trains pass me by, day by day
Dirty fingernails found in trash cans, clean ashtrays
Old sweaters and socks and hats, I shout out, "Please friend, if I may?"
Human contact that we lack, tooth decay
And it's toothpaste and heartache and antacids
Smile with your rotten teeth
Well love with your burning heart cold
Now fill that void please

Fill that void all alone
You gotta fill that void all alone
You gotta fill that void all alone
You gotta fill that void all alone
You gotta fill that void all alone
You gotta fill that void all alone
You gotta fill that void all alone
You gotta fill that void all alone
You gotta fill that void all alone
You gotta fill that void all alone
You gotta fill that void all alone
That missing puzzle piece

All my friends live and dine in wine barrel kegs
Beaten and bruised by the local alley tomcats, for Christ's sake
My grandfather's heart stopped, he was bitten by a copperhead snake
But his heart stopped by something as small as a tic, for heaven's sake
I kiss a photo of my grandpa dearest, God rest his soul
He died all alone

Don't we die all alone?
Don't we die all alone?
Don't we die all alone?
Don't we die all alone?

I went to Minnesota not to be alone, I ended up all alone
Hopped a train with no intention of returning home, of returning home, come on
I lost my way, I lost my way home, true story
I lost my God-forsaken mind
