lyrics

I was heading down to Boston, I here there's good work there
My brother was a rough man but he had a few things he could share
I'm not for you at my side
But tonight won't you be my guide
When the lights go out
And I could not remember if he said yes or no
"A man" he'll say "can do no more than be pilot to where he goes"

Oh, I know it hurts, but that's what this is all about
It's hard to hear I understand but you know that its all going out
Welcome! to a new life! it was like this the day you were born
Disjointedly disappointing good God I'm so worn

My habits are the usual ones my veins my blood my sides
A flower seed flowing free would better be served in my eyes
You know it wasn't always this way
No matter how I persuade
You don't want me
Its better that you go away, and leave me to my loves
You'll find a place to clean it up across the country in Boston

I was heading down to Boston, I here there's good work there
My brother was a rough man but he bought me train fare
