This song has not yet been applauded
not our pick   our pick   
Description: gonna drive down to the river
find a boat that i can take
hoist the main sail
rig the jib
sail in to the bay
catch a wind to the ocean
find a place to go
sail where ever the wind will take me
where it takes me i don't know


had a friend who had a life
didn't last him very long
it was hard while it lasted
and while it lasted it was wrong
he escaped from the institute
he would have stayed there for the night
he ran out into the highway
i hate to think about that sight


every once in a while
i like to get into a plane and fly
fly away across the ocean
and find a place where i can hide
find myself a big old church
a place where i can stay
get down on my bended knees
ask God to bless us all each day
