lyrics

the ceiling’s falling down on me
the floors begin to crack
the walls are closing in on me
only two weeks since I came back
but if home is where your heart is
this is not where I belong
my heart is feeling caged in
when the door’s closed for too long

and at night I rest my head against my backpack
so I can jump up any time and join my pack back
out on the road
on the road for what we strive
on the run from our old lives
and we wouldn’t want it any other way
cause we’re waifs and strays

so if you’re living on the run
from your everyday routine
you’re feeling like you can’t go on
like your own life’s refugee
well, a refugee's not welcome in a world of greed and hate
so if you see us, well, come join the independent strays' parade

and at night we fall asleep close to each other
so at dawn we wake up ready for another day
out on the road
on the road for what we strive
on the run but we're still alive
and we wouldn’t want it any other way
cause we’re waifs and strays

and we're moving on despite the fact
that there is no goal to reach
and we're moving on and off the track
for wherever there’s borders to breach
and the only state we're loyal to
is an open state of mind
not knowing what to look for
not knowing what we'll find

cause we're waifs and strays
each night and day
we're on our way
not here to stay
colored dots in lots of static gray
waifs and strays
each night and day
got nowhere to stay
but that's okay
as long as we’ve got us we’ll find a way
we’re waifs and strays and we’ll make it through the day
