about

This is the first single from our forth-coming full length album.

lyrics

THERE WAS A MAN STANDING ON THE CORNER
HE HAD EYES GLOWING AS BRIGHT AS THE SON
HE LOOKED ME RIGHT IN THE FACE
AND HE TOLD ME OF ANOTHER WORLD
AND HE SAID “SON I WON’T BE HELPING YOU GET THERE”

HE SAID “THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE”
HE SAID “YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN”
SO WON’T YOU TELL ME

WHO’S GONNA SAVE MY SOUL
WHEN I’M STANDING OUT IN THE COLD
WITH NO WAY OF BREAKING THE MOLD
OH JUST HOW SELFISH HAVE WE BECOME
WHO’S GONNA SAVE MY SOUL
FROM ALL THE RUBBISH THAT I’VE BEEN TOLD FOR SO LONG
DON’T THINK THAT I CAN STAND TO HOLD MY BREATH FOR MUCH LONGER

AS I WAS WALKING DOWN A NARROW CORRIDOR
I COULD FEEL THE DARKNESS TICKLING MY SPINE
AS I TREMBLED WITH EVERY STEP
YOU TRIED TO CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE
AND I SAID “HOW AM I GONNA MAKE IT OUT ALIVE”

I WAS THINKING THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE
“OH MY GOD I’M ON MY OWN”
SO WON’T YOU TELL ME

WHO’S GONNA SAVE MY SOUL
WHEN I’M STANDING OUT IN THE COLD
WITH NO WAY OF BREAKING THE MOLD
OH JUST HOW SELFISH HAVE WE BECOME
WHO’S GONNA SAVE MY SOUL
FROM ALL THE RUBBISH THAT I’VE BEEN TOLD FOR SO LONG
DON’T THINK THAT I CAN STAND AND HOLD MY BREATH FOR MUCH LONGER

LONGER

I GOT REVOLUTION REVOLUTION RUNNING THROUGH MY VEINS
BUT MY FEELINGS NEVER CHANGE
CONSTANTLY THE SAME
AND I COULD BE A KING
WITH A CROWN AROUND MY HEAD
IF I COULD ONLY LEAVE MY BED
IF I COULD ONLY LEAVE THE COMFORT OF MY HOME

I’M GONNA SAVE MY
I’M GONNA SAVE MY SOUL
I’M GONNA SAVE MY
I’M GONNA SAVE MY SOUL
