  • Lyrics: You don’t need to know which way the wind blows, boy You don’t need to know who’s gone before Just strap your boots on, get a new walking stick You don’t really need much more, here Or cast your vote for the one in the long boat Pick up a sail and tie it down Put down the phone, leave you megaphone alone If you don’t know it by now You better get it straight, boy, there ain’t nothing here Get your head straight, boy, it’s time for swimming upstream Get your bets straight, boy, before the windows close Break all the thread in the seam But it won’t come until you’re forgiven And it won’t come when you’re asleep So pick up some appreciation, please And cut a new world with your teeth Pack your bags and roll up your dirty old flags You pick your battles and go free Bag your doubts and your despair And leave your demons there By the sea You better get it straight, boy, there ain’t nothing here Get your head straight, boy, it’s time for swimming upstream Get your bets straight, boy, before the windows close Break all the thread in the seam ‘Cause you’re sinking in something while watching your life go by We can’t help but wonder when you’ll come alive Looking for instructions, you’d read both sides Before you would try You better get it straight, boy, there ain’t nothing here
