Find the Tide

I unleash my Buick on the unsuspecting night
and a cigarette burns up against the moonlight
with the smell of the ocean and the gleaming of the hood
I’m looking like a dream but the night it knew I would

and there’s a fierceness deep inside, the kind that never runs dry
and a lust for the feeling somewhere between the earth and the sky
and a longing to succeed at the things that make sense to me
’cause I’m the only one who will decide the way I’m gonna be

there’s nothing you can say
to make me turn around
the road’s the only place
my answers will be found
’cause my soul longs to be fed
with the wine and heavy bread
that will open the world wide
and I’ll run to find the tide

and you know if it’s just a dream then I’ll never wake
’cause you only got one life and you get what you can take
and the time will come with my life inside my hand
that I’ll feed my hungry soul with the fruit of the land

I search through the dusty corners of a ragged and ready mind
and I know that desire is all I’m gonna find
and I’ll step outside my cell and push the Buick to hell
insane or just hungry? y’know, y’never can tell

there’s nothing you can do
to keep me in this place
it’ll be hard to leave you
but there’ll be a smile on my face
’cause my soul longs to be fed
with the wine and heavy bread
that will open the world wide
and I’ll run to find the tide

my soul longs to be fed
with the wine and with the bread
that will set the world on fire
and fan the flames of my desire

so open the world up wide
and I’ll run to find the tide
