get on down

too many days looking at wrong tracks
too many nights trying not to wrench my back
till I heard the man in the engine and the caboose
telling me that it was past time to choose

He said get on down,
Yeah get on down,
Told me to get on down the road

have to rethink everything I’ve known
remember the sage who saw the fork in the road
walking in that same rut where everyone has been
now empathetic directions are there from all of them

they say get on down,
yeah get on down
tell me to get on down the road

a cloud, not a fog, witness the crimes
yet to come, right here and now, back in time
doesn’t matter where I go, someone’s been there before
opened every window, walked through all those doors

and they say get on down,
yeah get on down
tell me to get on down the road
boy, you gotta get on down
oh, get on down
get on down that road
let it take you home
(get on down)
make it all your own
(get on down)
know what you’ve always known
and get on down that road
