I'm driving down a dusty road
I've got nowhere to go
No place that I can call my own
On and on this road is burning 

I'm leaving all this crap behind
The past is gone, the future's blind
Don't care how long it takes this time
On and on I'll take the long way home 

The long way home
The long way home
If it's for me it's on the way home 

Like fragments of a broken mind
I splinter by my own design
This search is not a waste of time
On and on this road keeps burning 

My hands are glued upon the wheel
The road ahead is all I feel
The only thing left that's real
On and on I'll take this long way home 

The long way home
The long way home
I will go alone
I will go and find it on my own 

What lies ahead
You cannot find for me
On and on I'll take the long way home
