Chasing the Sun

19 Aug 2019

Went down south last summer
Chasing the sun
Working for the captain
Made some friends and I buried some

Went north into the mountains
Running from the police
Blasting tunnels into hard rock
That’s where I fell asleep

Light travels east to west
Rivers lose the waters they possess
All the time you take all the ways you move
Wherever you are headed, the journey it finds you

Followed the river
Heading upstream
The wind led me through the forest
There was no one to be seen

I went towards the sunrise
Trying to get ahead
And I wished that I was somewhere
That was alive or dead
