"The Ballad" lyrics - TESTAMENT

"The Ballad"

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 time, I'm happier being alive
Now I know the means to my opression were all lies
The only truth is your own most sacred lesson I've ever learned
I know we are free...

I've been robbed, I've been fooled
I intend now to make my own rules
Dagger's edge cut the line, I've been down that road
Too many times
What's to fear, fear no more
Show my conscience what fears'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 lifes not done with you
You're only just begun, to live your life!
For you...
