lonely man where you going are you waiting for your love to start showing lonely man where you going are you waiting for your love to start showing these days I set high to the sun I'll leave my heart for the cage I walked these hands to the dead marred my cross for your favor no, you don't know how to live lonely man where you going are you waiting for your love to start showing lonely man where you going are you waiting for your god to start showing I gave my heart to the sun so please leave me here you can't be forgotten when you're dead not if your heart isn't here no, you don't know how to live lonely man where you going are you waiting for your love to start showing lonely man where you going are you waiting for your god to start showing

everytime i leave im back where i began my feet are moving slow hell i can barely stand so I'll just stop right here i figured it would help with every step i took it worsened how i felt let that sail be your guide just go along for the ride you'll find happiness inside these winds its an offering its an offering now i just cant help thinking awful thoughts with all these people 'round me oh lord the gossip never stops let that ocean be your guide just go along for the ride you'll find happiness inside these tides its an offering its an offering

so tell what used to mean something to you before you let it die you saw that letter and you hid it well for someone here to justify it makes no difference does it dear when you've got nothing in your skies and as hard as you tried to leave it alone it certainly came back to your eyes so now your father has left his chair for reasons you cant seem to disclose and its starting to show in the strands of grey that seem to hang so listless in your face and all of your demons with shorter names but they remain here just the same and it must be simple now to refrain as long as its done in someone else's name

the gravel rattles in my shoes says I've been gone too long they said I've got nothing to lose and pay your way with a song but i sold it for a dime a penny a rhyme yes i stole but only a little just what i need to put the wind at my feet at least the blame was free and deserving of me but now i just cant seem to stop this old guitar will creak and moan it barely stays in tune i works these fingers string to bone under a clear white moon and i thank the stars its gotten me this far a penny in my jar yes i stole but only a little just what i need to put the wind at my feet at least the blame was free and deserving of me but now i just cant seem to stop

head on held high with tired eyes shadows circle a raven cries and the sun will burn our eyes said I said I and the sun will burn our eyes said I said I willow whisper to me shadows and sand cool and clean and the moon will calm you down said I said I and the moon will calm you down said I said I willow firmly rooted in your leaves i will weave a home I'm home yes I'm home and they'll never shake us blow and blow as the wind may and it may yes it may

I'm drawn to the flame what we love leaves us insane my shadow was ashamed so much he left and changed his name tear out my heart you thief tear out my heart you thief your weathered skin remains cracked and filled with dust and rain now your eyes opaque and plain and all your skies have turned the same tear out my heart you thief tear out my heart you thief

all you had to do is put up a fight all you had to do is put up a fight you really don't need to be so polite all you had to do is put up a fight one more kiss before we say goodnight one more kiss before we say goodnight before I close my eyes tell me everything alright just one more kiss before we say goodnight the clouds came down something shook beneath the ground I heard a voice saying everything will be just fine the mountain swayed it was a biblical masquerade and again I heard that voice Mary singing all you had to do is put up a fight all you had to do is put up a fight and incoming blow can be quite a fright all you had to do is put up a fight so please don't leave me where I lay please don't leave me where I lay this evening left my heart in quite disarray so please don't leave me where I lay the clouds came down something shook beneath the ground I heard a voice saying everything will be just fine the mountain swayed it was a biblical masquerade and again I heard that voice Mary singing

the circumstances full like the waves around your feet and you stood in the tide froze seaweed around your toes and in this you could believe in the motion manifested by the sea crying out with sweet relief in these waters i shall remain free singing om vajra sattva om singing om vajra sattva om maybe you got all you need to fight this war maybe you got all you need maybe you got all you need to fight this war maybe you got all you need... to fight this war singing om vajra sattva om singing om vajra sattva om
