Upchurch – Travelers Lyrics

Travelers By Upchurch Lyrics

I’m a travelin’ gypsy tipsy off weed and rye whiskey
Whistlin’ the silence at night
As the ghosts emerge from the thick weeds
Driftin’ in clothin’ they had
When they left this world years ago
So they tiptoe in heaven nervous
‘Cause they still ain’t the norm

They seen the light but they travel
Got stuck in the past to explore
Maybe we are in the past
That means the future is more
Or maybe the future is present
And before us this question
If that’s the case then who do we ask
When we need backwards directions

I mean there is a meanin’ for attributes
Especially one of a leader
One that goes against the road
And don’t care to die neither
And if I’m Robert E. Lee
Give me that Confederate Flag
Take me back to the past
So I can bleed out and laugh

He was a traveler
A rockstar and a healer
Four wheels spinin’ in the sunset
Through the night, through the night
Into the dark unknown
Guns are loaded, guns loaded
But he always made it home
Before the light, before the light
Struggle

Uh, grass grown over my heart
It’s been a lonely place
Waitin’ on my time to shine
Rolex with a broken face
Sleepin’ in a Cutlass
Showered in the truck stop
A buckshot’s the only thing
That will ever make this buck stop

Punch clocks and misery
Dreams of something bigger
I just want to reach the public
Not just be a public figure
Like to say that he failed
Train to success was derailed

Put my journey in a song
Inspire you with details
In a field searchin’ for seashells
No ocean was in sight
But I saw it in my heart
And kept believin’ it was right
Fight for what’s mine
And what’s not I’ll go and earn
Blazin’ a trail through the South
Tryin’ not to get burned

He was a traveler
A rockstar and a healer
Four wheels spinin’ in the sunset
Through the night, through the night
Into the dark unknown
Guns are loaded, guns loaded
But he always made it home
Before the light, before the light

I feel like I’m closer to heaven than ever
But lately I haven’t been prayin’
I feel like my halo has turned into a noose
And I’m fightin’ to stay on the pavement
I feel like the signs on the road
Keep on pointin’ me past all the places
I’ve wanted to go
So I stay on the road though
I’m farther from home
Than I hoped I would make it

I feel like I’m naked inside of a snake pit
And everybody want to take pics
I feel like I have to come out of this hole
With a pair of boots made of snakeskin
I feel like the road ahead is the highway
To hell but I’m still gonna take it

Nothin’ to lose and a second to prove
That the stars that I follow done led me to greatness
I sunk all the skeletons, drunk on adrenaline
Runnin’ and dumpin’ the evidence
Discussin’ my demons with devils disguised
As my friends who pretendin’ they’re better men
Collectin’ the feathers of vultures that patiently
Wait for a meal at my grave
Go tell my tale around campfires
If you listen close they’ll say

He was a traveler
A rockstar and a healer
Four wheels spinin’ in the sunset
Through the night, through the night
Into the dark unknown
Guns are loaded, guns loaded
But he always made it home
Before the light, before the light
