on Roadkill



It was been a long way south
To the endlessly stretching desert
I've got dust in my mouth
And a sting in my chest

And now I've got no use
For what I had seemed to need
I've got sand in my shoes
And an endless silence in my heart
(My heart)

And it's a long way home
And I'll never really get there
For the one coming back isn't me anymore
Not the same as before but someone
Who has learned to fall and get up after all
