Time, is the enemy of a young man's dreams
I'm stranded, in the heartland, or so it seems

I'm hitching a ride for a chance at the good life
I'll have my own place, out on fifth avenue
I'm leavin' this time gonna walk on that fine line
I'll be the first one who finally breaks through

One road to the promised land
I have to get there any way I can
One road to the promised land
Gonna find out just who I am

Freedom, do you know what I mean
Flatlands, are all I've ever seen

Stuck in a small town where you live, then you die
Ain't nothin' but fool's workin' nine until five
I'll sleep in the subways till I get what I need
I'm not gonna stay here, just lie here and bleed

One road to the promised land
I'm gonna get there any way I can
One road to the promised land
Show the world just who I am

One road to the promised land
I thought by now I'd be a different man
One road to the promised land
Guess I found out, just who I am
