we the willing, lead by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. we have done so much for so long with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

I will find my way through these Pine Tree State lines
And I will navigate back to you.

I’m so homesick, I don’t know why I thought I could leave you.
I miss your back roads twisting endlessly, those pine tree lines guiding you home
Where the street lights say “you’re dead to me.”

Guide me through these Pine Tree State lines.
I know my body lost you but I had you in my mind.
Always wanted to come back, never had the time.

I sat in a daze of hotel rooms and summer days wondering why I felt so overplayed.
I miss the stream that sat between my childhood and the Industrial Age,
Where I used to think of how I loved you, how I could tell you all the ways.

Take me to the clearing and leave me there today.
Take me to your heart,
I can’t find the way.
Let me in, say you want me,
This Pine Tree State betrayed me and I can’t find you,
I’m sorry.
