Roads Never Traveled

lyrics

Building the road,
that follows the tracks.
Leading straight back to nowhere
Power-lines lean, away from the wind
Sun rise lights up all who live there.

This path never ends,
Nor this crew that I'm' in.
A hardworking life is a good one.
I feel bad for the ones,
That travel this land
And each night,
Return back to no one.

As each traveler pass
I cant help but ask
How can they afford to come here
Cause for 12 hours a day
We work and we slave
And barley able to meet ends

Building the road,
that follows the tracks.
Leading straight back to nowhere
Power-lines lean, away from the wind
Sun rise lights up all who live there.


Roads Never traveled
and dreams unfifilled
Just swinging a pick axe
and paying the bills
As the breeze from the cars
blows dust in my mouth
that road never traveled
keeps kicking me down
