full lyrics:


you only see

downside of gettin lost

cannot fathom risk return

compared to cost

a few half steps into forest

you’re a bread crumb droppin child

you’re off course

if you’re afraid of gettin wild


that trail you’re on’s

a circle nowhere tour

beaten path that even you’ve

been down before

if your heart’s a busted compass

wink a warning signal flare

mine is broken too, but maybe

you could use it for your spare

consider my broken compass

for your spare

consider my broken compass

for your spare


we are each inmate or guard

of city zoo

I’ve know keeper types

escaped from cage or two

no one’s in charge

nothing’s promised

don’t be by billboards beguiled

it’s survival of insanest

in the wild


resupplies are sold

at camp store down the road

whiskey blindfolds gloves

and earplugs by the pair

a Swiss army kit

to dial your senses back a bit

so you touch and smell and taste

unfiltered air


I dunno if help is helpful

while you north needle repair

but maybe my broken compass

can at least get us outta here

consider my broken compass

for your spare

consider my broken compass

for your spare

consider my broken compass

for your spare
