Though I'd rather go and journey
Where the diamond crescents glowing
Run across the valleys
Beneath the sacred mountain
And wander through the forest

Where the rivers of our vision

And I know at the moment

The white cascading water, water, water

Though I doubt that he will ever come
To understand my meaning
In the end he'll surely know

I was not born to follow
I was not born to follow

I wasn't born to follow
I wasn't born to follow
