Lyrics
Breaking away to the other side
I want to make sense of why we live and die
I don't get it, I don't get it

I ask my friends if they understand
They just laugh at me and watch another band
They don't worry, they don't worry

Lookin' for a way to lose my load
I want to make it easy to walk this road
I can't find it, yeah I can't find it

Yeah, I'm looking for answers in so many places
I open my mind
I don't get it

Walkin' this earth and keepin' my peace
I do what I want but the price is steep
It don't seem right, it don't seem right

My mama she told me "One step at a time
And sooner or later you'll walk that line"
I don't want to, I don't want to

Takin' my time to live and die
I want to find a way to do it right
And I ease on, and I ease on

They say "One thing always leads to another"
I open my mind
I don't get it

Breaking away to the other side
I want to make sense of why we live and die
I don't get it, I don't get it
I don't get it, I don't get it
I don't get it
