lyrics

EL CAMINO

Don Navor / Michael Bradford

I am my father’s son
I’m not the only one
There’s a million more like me
We do what we have to do
With no one asking you
We take responsibility

But the world has other plans
And fate steps in to tie our hands
The picture that we painted
Blows away like grains of sand

100 miles down the El Camino
Sure didn’t look like rain
I heard the voice of the campesino
I still can’t explain
I was trapped inside a dream
High above the fields of green
But it’s all a game
I gotta crash this plane
In the field of reality
So I’ll be free

Every night I go
To the same old movie show
I get the same seat every time
The show I want to see
Is not what’s on the screen
It’s the nightmare of a life

The projector’s locked away
The program’s got to change today
I’m gonna burn this theatre down
There’s no future in this town

100 miles down the El Camino...
Sure didn’t look like rain
I heard the voice of the campesino
I still can’t explain
I was trapped inside a dream
High above the fields of green
But it’s all a game
I gotta crash this plane
In the field of reality
So I’ll be free

Who’s to know what might have been
While carrying the whole world’s sin
The man inside the glass
Is the one you cheat at last

And I’m 100 miles down the El Camino Sure didn’t look like rain
I heard the voice of the campesino
I still can’t explain
I was trapped inside a dream
High above the fields of green
But it’s all a game
I gotta crash this plane
In the field of reality
So I’ll be free
