Nowhere Roads

Nowhere Roads.  Written by Lori M. Presley © 2006/2010 Lori Neuro Music. Headed down this Road to nowhere Where its headed you know, I just don’t care Headed down this road to nowhere Come with me and you’ll see A masquerade defined A waxing, waning prophesy of lies With luck, I’ll find I’m angry enough to …
