I drove me out of the city
In a blurred crusade
The landscape was all twisted
The trees a toppled parade
The people they spoke in accents
Thick as a glottal stop
And when I asked for directions
They dismissed me chop-chop

Help me
I be lost
Won't you help me
I be lost

I drove me out to the river
Wanted to cast all my burdens away
A stranger crept up behind me
He handed me his resume
Said he had a friend in Jesus
I need no longer be confused
He asked me to go along for the ride
I politely refused

I'm a billion miles away now
From what I can't say
No signposts on this road I'm on
To light my way
How long will this take me
Where oh where am I bound
I know that I am lost, boy
And I won't ever be found
