lyrics

Took a wrong turnwatched my house burn,
Lost every dollar I ever earned,
Betrayed my friends and I lost my mind,
Had to leave everything, everything I’ve ever loved behind

Look on the horizon, you’ll see a shadow roam,
A lost man on a long road, looking for a home,
Cheap thrills and vain pursuits might leave you blind,
The devil’s playground is easy to find

There’s a war within myself, I wish I was someone else,
Someone better someone true, someone a little more like you,
So many changes I have known, but never have I felt at home,
Walking the eternal mile searching for sweet exile

Seduced by sin, again and again,
A force from within, nearly did me in,
Altered my mind, left me unkind,
Got lost in a reflection that wasn’t mine

Forty long days and forty long nights,
I waited so long, before I saw the light,
Enough to make a wise man seek and a sane man cry,
A strong man weak, and an honest man lie

There’s a war within myself, I wish I was someone else,
Someone better someone true, someone a little more like you,
So many changes I have known, but never have I felt at home,
Walking the eternal mile searching for sweet exile
