This ain't no long journey home
This ain't no trip across the tracks
This ain't no dead end street
There ain't no turning back
This ain't no long journey home

Another tale about an aging man
A tried but twisted plot
Another hero finding out that he's not
Act one we watch the onion peel
Act two the tragic flaw revealed
In three we close our eyes as his fate's sealed

This ain't no long journey home

Here's a story about a once young girl
Whose life has turned to rot
Thought she found her dreams, but she had not
Act one we see her bold and strong
Act two we watch her fumble along
In three we close our eyes as all goes wrong

This ain't no long journey home
This ain't no trip across the tracks
This ain't no dead end street
There ain't no turning back
This ain't no long journey home

A cautionary tale for all who come this way
A warning writ in water
Act one you'll see it all so clear
Act two you'll watch it disappear
In three open your eyes and stare down your fears

'Cause this ain't no long journey home
This ain't no long journey home
This ain't no long journey home
This ain't no long journey home
...
