lyrics

don't know which way you're going
don't know which way you been
you're always turning around
down on the ground
don't even know what's a sin

you've been trying to settle down
you've been trying to settle down

people saying they'll kill you
and you don't know quite what to do
and you read all the rules
that they sat on in school
but what good did they ever do you

you've been trying to settle down
you've been trying to settle down

people all over the planet
one thing everyone knows
we're from the same stuff
that the world was made of
and that's all that you can ever be sure

and you you heard about a place in the distance
where promise is on top of a hill
where the true will of grace
will come crashing from space
and land with space-tested skill

something you never thought of
whenever your vision got blurred
every time the sun's come to shine
on the spinning of the beautiful world

and so you gotta get going
there's something you're forgetting to do
gotta get in your car
don't have to drive very far
gotta get your shit fixed by noon

you've been trying to settle down
you've been trying to settle down
