For the journey is not the destination




I'm goin' down to old Lyons

I'm goin' down to old Lyons

Don't talk about me until I'm gone

I'm goin' down to old Lyons


I'm goin' down to old Milan

I'm goin' down to old Milan

Your eyes are pale and your skin is tightly drawn

I'm goin' down to old Milan


I'm goin' down to old Berlin

I'm goin' down to old Berlin

I've got a microchip tattooed into my skin

I'm goin' down to old Berlin


I'm goin' down to old Kiev

I'm goin' down to old Kiev

The powder paste is itchy and my cloth's a sieve

I'm goin' down to old Kiev


I'm goin' down to old Town go

I'm goin' down to old Town go

I just keep talking and it don't see steam no more

I'm goin' down to old Town

Old Town where the streets are brown

I'm goin' down to old Town go

this is interesting Chris-- it has a song rhythm, maybe folk?

More sort of blues rhythm, although not exactly that either. Thank you!
