The Way Lyrics

Artist: Fastball
Album: All The Pain Money Can Buy

They made up their minds
And they started packing
They left before the sun came up that day
An exit to eternal summer slacking
But where were they going Without ever knowing the way?
They drank up the wine
And they got to talking
They now had more important things to say
And when the car broke down They started walking
Where were they going without ever knowing the way?
CHORUS:
Anyone could see The road that they walk on is paved in gold
And It's always summer, they'll never get cold
They'll Never get hungry
They'll never get old and gray
You can see their shadows Wandering off somewhere
They won't make it home
But they really don't care
They wanted the highway
They're happy there today , today
The children woke up
And they couldn't find 'em
They Left before the sun came up that day
They just drove off
And left it all behind 'em
But Where were they going Without ever knowing the way?
Anyone could see The road that they walk on is paved in gold
And It's always summer, they'll never get cold
They'll Never get hungry
They'll never get old and gray
You can see their shadows Wandering off somewhere
They Won't make it home
But they really don't care
They wanted the highway
They're happy there today , today (repeat

This song was actually written about my cousin's aunt and uncle their car broke down one day and they just kept walking, and they left their kids behind. No Joke! It actually made National News when it happened too. They never came back home. They probably died in the desert.

Um, it was actually written about a couple who just vanished. They were supposed to be at a family reunion but they kept driving and ended up at the bottom of a cliff.

Don't talk about things that you aren't sure about.
"No lie" my ass.

where does it mention driving off a cliff?

Google this song as I did (fastball the way), and there will be a link to what the meaning of this song is about. Tony Scalzo wrote this after hearing of the couple's disappearance and months later their bodies were found over a cliff. Sad but true story but I love the song none-the-less.

It's as simple as this;
Two unhappy people, living in an unhappy world, trying to pretend it will all be OK... Turns out it wont all be OK.

Well, let's see; eternal slacking (never have to work!); they'll never get cold, or old; they had more important things to talk about, and didn't worry about anything left behind. hmmm..streets paved with gold, where have I heard that?
Maybe they DID know the WAY!
Ya think?
(and off in the distance we hear....I am the Way, the Truth and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Thomas: Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
Jesus: And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

The song is about Thailand. Phuket or some such. Forever summer and never ever being cold. Food is so cheap there they never get hungry and never they will never get old due to the humidity that keeps the skin wet all year round.
