Outward Bound

Two roads runnin'
One up and one down
On them both forever
Hell bent and glory bound
When I reach the crossing
Through it on the Big Screen
And I'm outward bound
But never in vain

Two doors open
One in and one out
For trouble I've been through
Both more than I can count
When I reach the crossing
I'll see it all again
And I'm outward bound
but never in vain

Peel away the covers I hug
Sweep my claim right under the rug
Draw my string like an arrow I'll aim
Outward bound but never in vain
Outward bound but never in vain

Two steps taken
One back and one forth
Love in both directions
For richer or for poorer?
When I reach the crossing it all becomes plain
That I'm outward bound but never in vain

Peel away the covers I hug
Sweep my time right under the rug
Draw my string like an arrow I'll aim
Outward bound but never in vain
Outward bound but never in vain
