Ice age, heat wave, can't complain 
If the world's at large, why should I remain?
 Walked away to another planet
 Gonna find another place, maybe one I can stand 
I move on to another day
To a whole new town with a whole new way
Went to the porch to have a thought 
Got to the door and, again, I couldn't stop
You don't know where and you don't know when
But you still got your words and you got your friends 
Walk along to another day
Work a little harder work another way
Well uh-uh, baby, I ain't got no plan
Well I float on, maybe would you understand?
 Gonna float on, maybe would you understand?
Well I float on, maybe would you understand?

The days get shorter and the nights get cold
I like the autumn but this place is getting old
I pack up my belongings and I head for the coast 
It might not be a lot but I feel like I'm making the most
The days get longer and the nights smell green 
I guess it's not surprising but it's spring and I should leave

I like songs about drifters, books about the same
They both seem to make me feel a little less insane  Walked on off to another spot
I still haven't gotten anywhere that I want
Did I want love? Did I need to know?
Why does it always feel like I'm caught in an undertow?

The moths beat themselves to death against the lights  Adding their breeze to the summer nights
 Outside water like air was gray
I didn't know what I had that day
Walk a little farther to another plan
You said that you did, but you didn't understand 

I know that starting over's not what life's about 
But my thoughts were so loud I couldn't hear my mouth 
My thoughts were so loud, I couldn't hear my mouth 
My thoughts were so loud, ah
