...many more miles

Out where your eyes are still and steely
itís a long and dusty road.
Thereís diamonds on the hillside, a steady breeze
and on your back a heavy load.
Your friends are all gone, theyíre back home
taken by the oil and the steel.
Where thereís a clicking and a tapping out on highways
that ainít even real.

Many more miles to go.
Many more miles to go.
I got faith in changes,
but nothing can ever be quite like it was.

See the new rays of the sun.
The spirit has been overcome.
Thereís too much time and space
between here and the place
where we come from.

Everything Iíve done wrong
sitting like stingrays in the sand.
Weíre just tasseled talkers
tumbling through a karmic jungle land.
We all walk that lonesome valley,
yes, we walk it alone.
But if thereís any way I can right the wrongs Iíve done
youíve gotta let it be known.

Many more miles to go.
Many more miles to go.
I got faith in changes,
but nothing can ever be quite like it was.
