  • Well we know where we're goin'
    But we don't know where we've been
    And we know what we're knowin'
    But we can't say what we've seen
    And we're not little children
    And we know what we want
    And the future is certain
    Give us time to work it out

    We're on a road to nowhere
    Come on inside
    Takin' that ride to nowhere
    We'll take that ride

    I'm feelin' okay this mornin'
    And you know,
    We're on the road to paradise
    Here we go, here we go


    Maybe you wonder where you are
    I don't care
    Here is where time is on our side
    Take you there...take you there

    We're on a road to nowhere
    We're on a road to nowhere
    We're on a road to nowhere

    There's a city in my mind
    Come along and take that ride
    And it's all right, baby, it's all right

    And it's very far away
    But it's growing day by day
    And it's all right, baby, it's all right

    They can tell you what to do
    But they'll make a fool of you
    And it's all right, baby, it's all right

    We're on a road to nowhere Writer/s: Chris Frantz, David Byrne, Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth
