Where does the man go travelling?
What pulls him, from here to there

Where does the man go wandering
Not through any fault of his own
He must go, where he is known

Under the bed, the verse you wish you’d never said
You left it bereft and laying by the wayside, laying by the wayside
Waiting to be heard, by some passing bird

Why must I wait in line?
Just tell me where he goes!
Pray tell me where he roams

Has he fled east, where the land is plagued with beasts
Did he fly south, to meet the river mouth
Oh, would he head north, I don’t know anymore
He’d never go west, it’s uncomfortable at best
Will he ever rest

Where the folk are good and worthy
And his woman is his own
And if he claims he is deserving
Well, I wouldn’t want to know

I am not (I am not, I am not) what you thought I was
I am not (I am not, I am not) what you thought I was
I am only (I am only) what you make me
