Alexei Panshin's The Abyss of Wonder


You don't seem to know what is real
You can't even tell me how you feel
   I can see it in your eyes
   I can see through your disguise
      You're all alone
As you move on down the highway
And tell yourself you're never comin' home

I cannot tell you what is right
As you try to turn your darkness into light
   You know you're doin' wrong
   You've known it all along
      Still you won't stay
As you move on down the highway
The mem'ry of your old life fades away

Happiness is never what it seems
You're not even happy in your dreams
   A geographic tour
   Won't cure you any more
      Than rock 'n' roll
As you move on down the highway
You never even think to save your soul
