no passenger lyrics – boiled in lead

walkin’ down an empty street in a city i don’t know
whistlin something catchy as i make my way through snow.
ain’t got no gloves so i keep my hands balled up in fists;
i’m tryin’ not to think how it all came down to this.

i been searching for a sparrow in a city full of wrens
i been asking for the cost so i can make amends
i been waiting for the questions so my answers will make sense
i been looking for the way home but the snow is much too dense.

they said “why are you here?” i said, “i’m doin’ time
cause i’m willing to break laws but i won’t commit no crime.”
if there’s more to making choices than luck and happenstance,
i hope i do it right next time i get the chance.

this city seems so cold, and it isn’t just the wind.
i would be easy to say, “i’m here because i sinned.”
i’m here because someday someone will need a ride
and i’ll throw away my drink and say, “the coach awaits outside
