I'm a pilgrim like you 
I was only passing through 
You'll never know my name 
You'll never walk in my shoes 
I've been no use to my friends 
I've been no use to myself 
Now I'm looking for proof that I ain't someone else 

I was too afraid to read the newspaper 
Working in the basement of a skyscraper 
That's why I roll and you'll never know my name 
Oh no 

I'm not here to feel the bones of some forgotten saint 
I know who I am, and I know who you ain't 
Spent fifteen days in solitary confinement 
Digging a hole in the wall 
There's no escape, they said you need realignment 
Now you're praying for help but they don't hear you call 

I was too afraid to read the newspaper 
Working in the basement of a skyscraper 
That's why I roll and you'll never know my name 
Oh no 
Destination, I don't care 
I know I'll get there when I'm there 
There's only one thing on my mind 
I've got more troubles than a diamond's got shine 

My shoes have kicked up dust from here to somewhere else 
Is this wanderlust 
Or running from myself? 
My neck was in the noose, but now I've been cut loose 
And put out to graze in delicate pastures 
Now I'm waiting for someone to put me to use 

I hope it's clear as crystal 
That the man with the pistol 
Is calling all the shots these days 
Now I'll be on my way, oh 
The self-fulfilling prophets 
They been lining their pockets 
And telling me that it's alright 
But I just don't buy it 
Oh no 

Destination, I don't care 
I know I'll get there when I'm there 
There's only one thing on my mind 
I've got more troubles than a diamond's got shine 

Destination, I don't care 
I know I'll get there when I'm there 
There's only one thing on my mind 
I've got more troubles than a diamond's got shine
