lyrics

Judgment Road
Distant thunder, restless night, last smoke in the pack
I stopped a stranger, bummed a light and took a long sweet drag
When it burned like hell to pay and turned my fingers black
I crushed it out and walked away, and I ain't looking back

I feel it in my soul, there's something calling me
Out where the dust clouds roll, that's where I'm gonna be
This highway takes its toll before it sets you free
'Round the final bend straight to the end
Of Judgment Road

Racing past the break of dawn across the great divide
Stuck on "E," the rearview's gone, now there's no place left to hide
I drove into the blinding sun, too strung out to sleep
After all is said and done, there's no secrets left to keep

'Cause sins are not forgiven and no one here forgets
The guilty go on living til they die with their regrets

Beyond the far horizon's edge the truth must stake its claim
On that lonely, narrow ledge where there's no one left to blame
For what you are and what you're not, and for the cause you serve
You give it everything you've got and get what you deserve

I feel it in my soul, there's something calling me
Out where the dust clouds roll, that's where I'm gonna be
This highway takes its toll before it sets you free
'Round the final bend straight to the end
Of Judgment Road
