lyrics

Can’t get away from the way of the world
Can’t get away from the way of the world
Give that girl your furthest twirl
‘cause you can’t get away from the way of the world

I went down to the desert alone.
I slept in the sand with my head on a stone.
I awoke to a buzzard buzzing around,
Looking to lift the dead from the ground.
I decided I’d look alive.
If I did one cartwheel, I did five.
Landed with my hand on a rattlesnake curled,
‘cause I couldn’t get away from the way of the world

Can’t get away from the way of the world
I can’t get away from the way of the world
Fall into the ocean, gonna find you a pearl
Because you can’t get away from the way of the world

I stood high on an overlook tall
Saw rocks, mud, sand, and dust all form a wall
Carried my gaze to a cactus on the ground,
And a stone crumbling down made the whole canyon sound
My quarter ran out, then everything went black.
I figured I should start making my way back.
Drove dead ahead to where the highway unfurled,
But I couldn’t get away from the way of the world

Can’t get away from the way of the world
I can’t get away from the way of the world
Try and disappear like a peppermint swirl
But you can’t get away from the way of the world

I drove myself through the night.
My road was so dark it was out of sight.
I wanted to sleep, but really wanted to awake.
I wanted the summer driving over a lake.
I thought about the sun up somewhere bright,
And a sea of pigeons there taking flight.
When the road took a toll, presidents I hurled,
‘cause I couldn’t get away from the way of the world

Can’t get away from the way of the world
I can’t get away from the way of the world
Try and disappear like a peppermint swirl
But you can’t get away from the way of the world

Can’t get away from the way of the world
Can’t get away from the way of the world
Chase that rabbit, chase that squirrel
But you can’t get away from the way of the world
