From oasis to oasis, I walk with a heavy, heavy load
Carrying all my hopes and fears, everything, everything I own
A handful of confidents, roam with me for a while
But they never stick around, never past the next sandpile

A solo in the desert
Like a lonely bedouin
Crossing dune and valley
A caravan of one

We set off all together, but so quickly broke apart
Rejoined with the others, but that just broke our hearts
Went on a ways alone, and missed out on the best lineups
Down to a single backpack, no more overflowing cups

Journey's lasted longer, longer than I ever dreamt
Carrying as little as I can, so little I now attempt

Lizard and the scorpion
Don't need a single dime
I have so much more
It almost seems a crime
Since I'm just passing through
It's only a lifetime
Only a lifetime


from Twenty Eight Turns, released March 12, 2012
