No man can save me
No man can save me now
What took so long to figure that out?
We are surrounded
By so many more than I had planned
I'm contemplating a last pathetic stand
I thought I'd figured it all out
And of course that's useless now
My knees are trembling
And now my hands shaking too
But I feel something more than fear
What was I thinking?
When did I last write back to home?
There's someone breathing close to here
And I thought I had so much to prove
Of course that's meaningless now
Funny how in this stillness
The air seems so soft and precious
And it's now and it's now
That the two ends meet
The time I've wasted
Boasting, stinking of ale
Putting men down to prove I'd never fail
But there is forgiveness
I hear it whistling in my ear
Swift as an arrow, strong as fear
And I thought I'd finally made my mark
But of course that's meaningless now
Funny how in this stillness...
