Essence Road

If you're feeling like you're in the flow
Feeling confident in what you know
Then you've still got a long way to go
To the junction at, Essence Road

Just ignore it when folks say you're saved
It's the spirit, I know, that you crave
'Cause you still got a long ways to go
To the turn-off that joins Essence Road

     Do some jogging, go lift a few weights
     Don't get stuck if you go on some dates
     Raise your thoughts to self-critical glee
     And your family with integrity

Take your boots off, it's end of show
Where you're sure that you know you don't know
'Cause you've always been, free to go
Take the turnpike to, Essence Road

You've put on this act for so long
You should write it all down in a song
But it'll change everything that you've knowed
When you're driving down, Essence Road
