Runnin’ from the devils Lord and reachin’ for the stars
And losin’ all he loved along the way…
He’s a poet he’s a picker he’s a prophet he’s a pusher
He’s a pilgrim and a preacher and a problem when he’s stoned
He’s a walkin’ contradiction partly truth and partly fiction
Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home.
~ Kris Kristofferson, “The Pilgrim, Chapter 33″, The Silver Tongued Devil And I
