lyrics

[Verse 1: int eighty]
Hit the road, get on my flight fine, touch down, reset
Just gotta get in my right mind
Every second is prime time along for the ride
When this body's my vehicle I'ma drive mine
Lights in the tunnel, illuminate the skyline
A green metal scene not a dream but a pipe climb
(Gears march on) Witness the journey of a lifetime
So much struggle but it's relative, Einstein
Going in circles, trying to find the right sign
A one way ticket, we couldn't book it on Priceline
My rearview is clear view in front of me my eyes blind
Shouldn't be driving it in the night time
Easily lost and more easily scared
With the shadows from the bright lights
And high beams glare
Thick like the fog but clouded by doubt and fear
Then you defrost the windows
Everything becomes clear
See here, opportunities still appear
Same trips but the brand new flavor in your ear
More than a death tax year after year
If there's only one shot then it's more than a career (yeah)
Wrong turns and there's no going back
No slack impact detour after the fact that
Sometimes GPS got in on track but if only I could navigate life
With Google Maps like that
(right turn ahead)

[Chorus]
Welcome to your life, welcome to this road
The path's uncharted, gotta choose where you go
On this one way show, please pay the toll
With your hands on your wheel, gotta maintain control

Welcome to your life, welcome to this road
The path's just started, gotta choose where to go
On this one way show, relax, take it slow
(it's the return of the drifter)

[Verse 2: int eighty]
This goes out to my people everywhere
Who in suffering endured more than their fair share
The other kids at school made fun of what you wear
Gym class picked last and never the best player
The resistor, it's the, drifter
Mister, inter-rupt eighty just the descriptor
Table and it's stable so I spit a little quicker
To deliver all the syllables
Advanced to beginner didn't skip ya (Viktor)
This is for the new kids
Band nerds, chess clubs that never met Cupid
Every day feeling so intrusive
Past, present, and future all inclusive
Understand that they just got it wrong
In the zone or at home somewhere you belong
They put you in that cage full of rage King Kong
Claiming you were weak but inside so strong
Thinking back remembering the dread
How you hated weekdays lay awake in bed
How you clutched at your sanity by a thin thread
Wishing that your enemies had just been friends
Cause this is your time so they're in debt
For stealing all your shine made it hell instead
You had the answers they're not impressed
Embarrassed and distressed about your interests

[Chorus]
Welcome to your life, welcome to this road
The path's uncharted, gotta choose where you go
On this one way show, please pay the toll
With your hands on your wheel, gotta maintain control

Welcome to your life, welcome to this road
The path's just started, gotta choose where to go
On this one way show, relax, take it slow
(it's the return of the drifter)

[Verse 3: int eighty]
This one's for everyone, in no way political
Fine, just a little bit consider it municipal
Brushed off the critical defied all the ridicule
Denied any opportunity to make you miserable
This one's for you in the physical
You in the digital, you all together indivisible
You atypical, you all original
Who severed the umbilical you the individual
Now take a look at you, see it in the clear?
Made it out the fog, still standing, now you're here (uh uh)
Lookin' back you was bringing up the rear
See those bullies who you feared
At best are just your peers
And at worst? No need for going there
Got your own path, keep climbing those stairs
It's the path less traveled, now that you're aware
Hold your head high, put your chin up in the air right there

[Chorus]
Welcome to your life, welcome to this road
The path's uncharted, gotta choose where you go
On this one way show, please pay the toll
With your hands on your wheel, gotta maintain control

Welcome to your life, welcome to this road
The path's just started, gotta choose where to go
On this one way show, relax, take it slow
(it's the return of the drifter)

Welcome to your life, welcome to this road
The path's uncharted, gotta choose where you go

Welcome to your life, welcome to this road
The path's just started, gotta choose where to go

(high plains drifter)
(return) to your life
