Marker three three three nine

Going on a road trip
Something for my soul
It’s gonna take a while
But, it’s gonna make me whole

I’m going to cross the country
But, I’ll start on both the coasts
I’ve been in too many bottles
Have to exorcise some ghosts

Mile Marker Three Three Three Nine
That’s where the dream did end
Mile Marker Three Three Three Nine
That’s where I’ll start to mend

Greyhound bus out of the east
From the Maritimes my son
I’ll venture through Quebec as well
This is journey number one

I’ll stop and meet the people
Get their stories, of the man
I’ll find the ones who met him
Try to learn just what I can

Adversity, I’ve had my share
Always tried self medication
Now, I need to find myself
This will take some dedication

I’ll head on through Ontario
On the Trans Canada Highway route
And I’ll try lose my demons
Give my devils all the boot

Brick by brick I’ll bring down the walls
That over years I’ve built
Bricks made up of hate and rage
by love, and fear and guilt

From the west, I’ll make my way
Do the highway he could not
Through the rocky mountains
Every mile is hard fought

I’ll learn about the person
Who he was and who I am
I’ll come through the fire stronger
I’ll be a much better man

I will bus across the prairies
Through the Manitoba cold
I will focus on my endgame
I’ll learn from what I’m told

Two journeys I will travel
Neither one from coast to coast
But, both are to be ended
by that famous mile post

Maybe I can find the answer
Join myself, go through the door
As he joined a nation
So many years before

Mile Marker Three Three Three Nine
That’s where my journey ends
Mile Marker Three Three Three Nine
That’s where I’ll start to mend
