Out Of The Wilderness


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 reckless

Allies souls can move apart

Surface wounds infectious

Through to your Achilles heart.

"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 wilderness

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 wilderness

I've cut my way through all

the sympathy and tenderness

A soldier of fortune

I fell once
