I am just a traveling man
Alone and in my shell
Beaten by these broken times
Wandering through this hell
And I have taken chances
And I've lost all my rules
The answer's right in front of me
And I have been a fool

I keep taking the long way around
Why must I take the long way around
I keep thinkin' that I'm moving up
When I'm losing my ground
Why must I take the long way
The long way around

All I ever wanted
In this life was to be pure
Seduced by colors in my eyes
Taken by the hand
Of all the things I've ever wanted
Of all the treasures in my life
The greatest is the mind

So why do I take the long way around
Why must I take the long way around
I keep thinking that I'm moving up
When I'm losing my ground
Why must I take the long way
The long way around

He told me what's the cost
But only when the path is lost
And whoever found an open door
In this ocean of suffering
If I've had anything
I don't want to hide from me no more

I am just a traveling man
Alone and in my shell
Beaten by these broken times
Wandering through this hell
And I have taken chances
I've lost all my rules
The answer is right in front of me
I have been a fool

I keep taking the long way around
Why must I take the long way around
I keep thinking that I'm moving up
When I"m losing my ground
I keep taking the long way
The long way around
I keep taking the long around
I keep taking the long around
I keep thinking that I'm moving up
When I'm losing my ground
I keep taking the long way
The long way around
