The Ballad Lyrics

8. The Ballad (6:07)
Track rating :  87.5 / 100      Votes :  2     
I'm not one to say where my feelings are going
When they wither away I pray to see another day
My heart's feeling like a needle lost in the hay
Restrained to meet again, my friend
Do you think that we ever will?
I know we are free...

The games are played with your life on the line
Some lose, you win if you keep on trying
I don't mind doing the time, I'm happier being alive
Now I know the means to my oppression were all lies
The only truth is your own most sacred lesson I've ever learned
I know we are free...

Yeah-yeah, don't go! No, don't look back, just realize...

I've been robbed, I've been fooled
I intent now to make my own rules
Dagger's edge cut the life
I've been down that road too many times

What's to fear, fear no more
Show my conscience what fear's for
Now I know this is so real
What's done is done so do as you will

I'm keeping alive.!. Go on! No, don't look back
Just realize where you've gone, where are you going to
No, life's not done with you
You've only just begun to live your life for you...
