  • Searching for something
    A million miles and a ways to go
    Ending up wondering
    Moments I think I know
    The answer seems to elude me

    Searching for something
    A million miles and a ways to go
    Sifting through nothing
    The sand you cannot hold
    Destination nowhere ooh
    Destination nowhere ooh
    Ooh-eeh-ooh

    Bro' I had a dream man and it was buried in lore
    That I was sailing on the seas and I was out to explore
    And it was lucid in a way homey I didn't need oars uh-uh
    I had a feeling I'd been there before yo

    I hit shore it was shrouded in mist
    And in the distance coming in view a primordial forest
    A people then approached waving their hands
    They were speaking in a tongue I could not understand

    They led me though at last to a beautiful fire
    And it deepened in a way I forgot I admired
    What emerged was more than the wholeness within
    I'd seen the men who had been me the beasts I had been

    Searching for something
    A million miles and a ways to go
    Sifting through nothing
    The sand you cannot hold
    Destination nowhere ooh
    Destination nowhere ooh
    Ooh-eeh-ooh-eeh-ooh

    I show them how the rattle valley started to shake
    Anxiety was filling me and was this all a mistake?
    An elder fell to the ground marking the dirt
    He was drawing up a map defining sky and the earth

    He pointed to the east, north, west and the south
    And then he pointed to the heavens and we started to shout
    The women in the front at once began to chant
    While the men beat on drums and the elder man danced

    Come on yeah it'll be alright
    And we're gonna take a ride
    I don't know if we'll come back
    Come on yeah it'll be alright
    And we're gonna take a ride
    I don't know if we'll come back

    Come on yeah it'll be alright
    And we're gonna take a ride
    I don't know if we'll come back
    Come on yeah it'll be alright
    We're gonna take a ride
    I don't know if we'll come back
