Well, we know where we're going, but we don't know where we've been
And we know what we're knowing, but we can't say what we've seen
And we're not little children, and we know what we want
And the future is certain, give us time to work it out

Yeah

We're on a road to nowhere, come on inside
We'll take that ride to nowhere, we'll take that ride
Feeling okay this morning, and you know
We're on a road to paradise, here we go, here we go

We're on a ride to nowhere, come on inside
Taking that ride to nowhere, we'll take that ride
Maybe you'll wonder where you are, I don't care
Even when time is on our side, take you there, take you there

We're on a road to nowhere, ha, ha
We're on a road to nowhere, ha, ha
We're on a road to nowhere, ha, ha, whoo

There's a city in my mind, come along and take that ride, and it's all right, baby, it's all right
And it's very far away, but it's growing day by day, and it's all right, baby, it's all right
Would you like to come along, you can help me sing this song, and it's all right, baby, it's all right
They can tell you what to do, but they'll make a fool of you, and it's all right, baby, it's all right
There's a city in my mind, come along and take that ride, and it's all right, baby, it's all right
And it's very far away, but it's growing day by day, and it's all right, baby, it's all right
Yeah, would you like to come along, you can help me sing this song, and it's all right, baby, it's all right
They can tell you what to do, oh, God, they'll make a fool of you, and it's all right, baby, it's all right

We're on a road to nowhere, hey
We're on a road to nowhere, ha
We're on a road to nowhere, ha, ha
We're on a road to nowhere

Every weekend, '93-2000, my ex- and I used to pile gear and friends into the super-charged Subaru and drive deep into the wilderness of 4-WD roads in Noto Hanto (Peninsula), with this — and usually all of the superb Sand in the Vaseline collection — always included in the soundtrack, and every time this came on, we would all sing along, marking the moments and savoring the connections in Time... 

 
cool.. 

this album has very special memories for me too. 
hell - what a perfect song

Channeling Sonny Landreth. A good thing.
My friends and I always appreciated the Talking Heads especially because they were all about creative exploration and cutting loose...
Feeling very Zydeco

One of my faves!

True, so true willmcnaught.  But my journey is blissful as I believe in better living through narcotics.  Actually today this sounds better

Wow Bill is on a Talking Heads roll today.  I think this is the 3rd song in a few hours either by or written by TH - go Bill! {#Smile}
The first time I heard this song was when I was working at The Gap in Edinburgh ... it was on the 'loop tape' that repeats every 3hrs. I loved it the first time I heard it and loved it every time it came on ! 
Brings back great memories of folding shirts & pants into perfect geometric shapes {#Roflol}

FYT again.

Doesn't it suck when somebody changes your words that way?
