The Journey

Album: Brain Capers (1971)
  • All the changes they will take their time
    In the morning dust they'll begin to rise
    Halfway to a borderline
    Well I can see the end
    For the very first time

    Well I know I lost just a little bit on the journey
    When my mind's been split by little things that didn't fit on the way
    Oh I know I lost just a little bit on the journey
    Cause I'm trying so hard to get going

    There's a man on a bridge called suicide
    And he hides his head while the coast is dark
    And the river drags and the water sways
    Oh his rags've seen better days

    And I guess he lost just a little bit on the journey
    For his mind was split by little things that didn't fit on the way
    (Oh) yes I know he lost just a little bit on the journey

    For every gift he had to give
    For every life (yeah) he had to live
    Well they meant nothing without her to guide him on his way

    Well he told her he was a leader
    Of a well respected (load)

    But when he tried to leave her
    Well she looked right down her nose
    Many times he tried to make her believe in herself
    But she wouldn't listen to a word he said

    Well he followed her though the darkness
    All the chances I take
    He followed her though the wilderness
    Her mystery to break
    Many times he tried to make her believe in herself
    But she wouldn't listen to a word he said

    So for 40 days and for 40 nights
    Well they tied my (ways) they can see the light
    And the angel screamed in my nightmare ride
    And the changes left (yeah) but they will take their time

    And I guess I lost just a little bit on the journey
    Yes I know I lost just a little bit on the way
    I know I lost just a little bit on t
