Does anybody know where we're really gonna go?
I was wondering if we got that real soul
You know the thing we cannot trade or ever own

Does anybody know where we're really gonna go?
I was wondering if we got that real soul
You know the thing we cannot trade or ever own

'Cause solitude, a sacred mood
Appalachian Springs, all my days
Took a step to the left, took a step to the right
I saw myself and it wasn't quite right, are you?

Does anybody know where we really gonna go?
I was looking for answers in the soul
You know feelings that a man can't control

I let the fire burn bright in the dead of night
As the only cheat here I told a lie
I said that I would never be on their side

Took a step to the left, took a step to the right
And I saw myself and it wasn't quite right
Took a step to the left, I took a step to the right
I keep it together, yeah

And I was waiting for my number called
Like a bingo calling, singing in his soul
He said I'm number 69, I said okay

'Cause solitude, my sacred mood
Appalachian Springs, all my days
Took a step to the left, took a step to the right
Yeah, I keep it together, you know I'm not right
Took a step to the left, I took a step to the right
I'm gonna keep it together

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon

Does anybody know where we're really gonna go?
I was wondering if we got that real soul
You know the thing we cannot trade or ever own

Or ever own, or ever own, or ever own
Or ever own, or ever own, or ever own
Or ever own, or ever own, or ever own

Oh Lord, I'm coming home
Feel so young, I don't know where I have gone

I took a step to the left, I took a step to the right
And I saw myself, and I wasn't quite right
Yeah, slip into the dreams
Slippin' out, slippin' in and out of dreams
