I came from a fever
Bastard child I roamed
Spent my time flying high and running from my home
Didn't know which way to go
Which was right or which was wrong
So I took any road that came along

It was five feet of road
to the mountains that i climbed
the mountains inside from the valleys that I hide
Five feet of knowing and the rest without signs
But a bird on my shoulder
and you on my mind

Like a lone wolf in the woods
Roaming for it's kind
A barfly in the alley way
Waiting for night time
My love I know you I'd find
Sweet as the moon
Across the river you'll shine
Like a ribbon of gold toward the pine

Was five feet of road
Through the desert I'd crossed
The ice in my bones
And the demons I had fought
Five feet of feeling proud and the rest left a hollow sound
A hollow sound and a pound in my hearts canyon

Five feet of road
Across the ocean that I'd cried
I held on to my hope
A ball gone untied
Five feet of knowing and the rest without signs
But a bird on my shoulder
And you on my mind
