I’m tired of this old busted life
And I’ve yet to make my mark
I got an empty heart and a bucket of strife
And it’s time to light a spark

I lift my gaze to the heaven’s above
For guidance or a sign
I didn’t see no southern cross
And Polaris suits me fine

Well where I’m travelin’s true north
And it’s true north I must go
I know I’ll be travelin’ true north
Cause that bright star tells me so
That bright star tell me so

I’ll throw a book of affirmations in a worn out bag
Crunch the gravel on the road
The man I am is such a drag
Gonna let him just explode

I meet a lot of little people In a lot of little towns
Who can teach me a simpler way
I’ll laugh at all their jokes and buy another round
They’ll ask but I can’t stay

My feet’ll stray from the traveled path
With nature I’ll commune
Out in the woods I’ll lose sloth and wrath
Enlightenment will come soon

Gonna meet a hippy dippy girl with a pony tail
No shoes upon her feet
She’ll teach me love and I won’t fail
I’ll gain benevolence for weeks

I’ll reach the top of the world and I will see
Aurora Borealis all alone
I haven’t taken time to look deep in me
So it’s doubtful I have grown

And I thought that I traveled true north
But it’s true north I won’t see
No use in travelin all the way
If I can’t find the truth in me
If I can’t find the truth in me
