Buy the Ticket

Buy the ticket, take the ride
release the demon that lives inside
go someplace where you can’t hide
buy the ticket…take the ride

We’re all heading to the same destination
on different roads by different means
wearing looks of conformity or strangeness
because nothings is at all like it seems

Buy the ticket, take the ride
release the demon that lives inside
go someplace where you can’t hide
buy the ticket…take the ride

Without thinking we know what we know
that without having, we’re all just the same
bereft of disbelief we continue the journey
in some cases simply separated by a name

Buy the ticket, take the ride
release the demon that lives inside
go someplace where you can’t hide
buy the ticket…take the ride

Death is inevitable but hopefully not today
we sit on our ideals like hands in pockets
thinking always thinking our way out of this
going from feet to horses to cars to rockets

Buy the ticket, take the ride
release the demon that lives inside
go someplace where you can’t hide
buy the ticket…take the ride

One last attempt is what we always say
but it’s never quite so easy or cut and dried
the demon that drives us toward an open grave
is sometimes the only thing we have inside

Buy the ticket, take the ride
release the demon that lives inside
go someplace where you can’t hide
buy the ticket…take the ride

Buy the ticket, take the ride
buy the ticket…take the ride
