lyrics

The Stranger

Have a taste of fire and menace, next we know
Staring out in the night as it sinks down, down, down
Shadows dance in all directions, black stars rise
Stare with silence expectations gone
I've seen that face before tonight

The song has gone unsung (even as you’re listening)
Send me home undone (waiting for the promise of life)
Free my mind tonight (tired from the length of this ride)
A stranger on the tides (finds himself alone in the night)

It was all the same, every time
Every memory locked and spun around
Forced my eyes open and I saw it all
Open up to endless space and time
Never want to see what was inside

A stranger comes tonight (longing to find his way)
To circle through the skies (blinding by the light of the day)
Free my soul this time (lonesome from this ride)
strange moons arise (nothing left to see or to hide)

The song has gone unsung (even as you’re listening)
Send me home undone (waiting for the promise of life)
You've got to free my mind tonight (tired from the length of this ride)
A strange moon will rise (red and yellow eyes)
A stranger comes tonight (long, long time)
To circle through the skies (endless space and time)
The king will die unfounded (mystery of the time)
And time will be rewound (finds himself free from this life)
