Wandering Child

Wandering Child

Gov't Mule

In a lonely dream a boy goes walking
Drowned in shame, drunken with emotion
He says his world is just an ocean
Says his poor heart too many times been broken

The bones in your closet
Once bore the skin of your fathers
Guess that means it's out of your hands
Or you're too tired, too tired to bother

Help me now, save the wandering child

Now that you're broken, who'll clean up this mess
Now that your vision is blinded, I guess
You say "where do I fall, now that my strength is gone
And who do I tell, "I've done nothing wrong'â??"

Float upon the river till the water runs still
Dive to the bottom-got to drink from the well
Till I find who I am, till I find out who I am
Now that there's no one to show me

Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child

In a lonely dream a boy keeps walking
Drowned in shame, drunken with emotion
He says his kill-it is his crown
Says his angels are no longer looking down

A horse and a monkey, no kids and no wife
A hell of a way for a hero to spend his life
Time to unearth the worm
Let this bridge fall down and burn

Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child
