THERE WAS A MAN THAT I ONCE KNEW
THOUGH HE NEVER TAUGHT ME MUCH
HE GOT HIS LAWS AND STANDARDS FROM
A BIBLE FROM AN OLD WOODEN HUTCH

NOW I CAN SEE THAT IT WAS HARD
TO STRUGGLE THROUGH THOSE YEARS
BUT HOW DID HURTING HIS FAMILY
MAKE UP FOR ALL HIS TEARS?

IN SUBTLE WAYS HE LED ME DOWN
A PATH OF THE WALKING DEAD
AND MANY YEARS OF HEARING LIES
I BEGAN TO BELIEVE WHAT HE SAID

FOR MANY YEARS I LIVED BY THIS
A WORLD APART FROM PEACEFUL BLISS
I WANT OUT FOR I HAVE GROWN TIRED
BUT I’VE NEVER BELIEVED IN THE WISH

WHEN YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE ALONE
AND YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE TO BLAME
UNDERSTAND THAT LIFE IS JUST
A MEANINGLESS, RULELESS GAME

SO MANY YEARS HAVE PASSED
AS I HAVE COLLECTED HATE
AND A HEART HE HOLDS AWAY FROM US
WILL SURLY GO TO WAIST

I CAN STILL RECALL A TIME
WHEN WE STRUGGLED TO GET BY
AND WHEN I THINK OF HIM IN A CELL
I BEGIN TO FEEL SORRY AND CRY

IN ANTICIPATION WE WILL WAIT
FOR OUR TIMES TO COME AND GO
I’LL REGRET THE THINGS THAT I HAVE DONE
BUT I WONDER IF HE WILL

TEN YEARS GONE BUT STILL THE SAME
HIDDEN UNDER SNOW
HOPING IT WILL AT LEAST BE PEACEFUL
WHEN I SAY GOODBYE AND GO

THE PAGES TO MY STORYBOOK CLOSE
AND THE LIGHTS HAVE DIMMED TO GRAY
I WILL WAKE AGAIN TO THE RISE OF THE SUN
AND STRUGGLE THROUGH ANOTHER DAY
