Soon there will come a time
Whether a life like mine
Reaches you
Touches you
Under a cloud of fear
No longer need me here
Feeling secure
Part of the cause
Dramatic setting for
Friendship is not so pure
Now we have come so far
Etched on my mind unsure
Far reaching consequence
Born from indifference
Leave me here now
Forgotten with pretence
Forward and sufferance
Leave me here now?
When the time was right
And the signs were clear
I should have known
But I didn't hear the warning
.....The calling!
When the moment came
And the lonliness
Was falling in
I couldn't find a reason
...I stopped believing
Once more to the breach
There's nothing left to teach
me now ....Now!
Stand up and be counted
No more time for doubt,
stand up
Stand up!
Was it empathy or apathy
we shared
There's no understanding
When honesty's not there
No hand me down excuses
Insincerity too far
Are brave enough
or strong enough
when truths are told in halves
Now its obvious
It's so obvious to me
Now its obvious
In this wilderness you'll see
That hollow words
are feckless
Allies souls can move apart
Surface wounds infectious
Through to your Achilles
"Forgive them, for they know
not what they do"
What is forgiveness?
Who grants forgiveness?
Who gives a damn?
I'm breaking out of this
I turn my back on all the
make believe and promises
A soldier of fortune
I fell once before
But I live again!
I'm part of this once more!
I'm breaking out of this
I've cut my way through all
the sympathy and tenderness
A soldier of fortune
I fell once before
But I live again!
I'm part of this once more!
