The Travelers

We're travelers and we have no home,
We're travelers and we are trying to atone,
We're travelers and we have no name,
We're travelers with no one to blame,

Travelers who have no shame,
Travelers who all look the same,
Travelers who still love you,
But we prefer skies blue,

We don't play the game you do,
We also never feel blue,
We only know what is true,
We also know what's good for you,

We don't need your superstition,
We can't believe in repetition,
We don't like your traditions,
We only have our intuition,

We're travelers, we can take the pain,
We're travelers, you think we're insane,
We're travelers, we see your principles sway,
We're travelers, we still love you anyway,

Traveling time, through dirt and grime,
Hoping one day to align,
Our hearts and minds,
Travelers who will leave a sign of better times.
