Prodigal Blues

Cambodia is an amazing place. Many live here to get the hell away from wherever or whatever they have had enough of. She takes us in her warming embrace and smothers out the pain and sorrow from which we escaped, sometimes with just our lives, if not our souls. But I tell you, whatever it is one may run from, it always finds you. Even in Cambodia...

Riding my life
Like a run-a-way train
Moving from
One track to that
Howling, crying,
Screaming at the moon
Only my voice came back
Only the echo came back

(thanks to Billy Idol for one of the best set of lyrics ever put to music)
