Theme Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Thank you God
For this great opportunity
To Share with you exactly how I feel
I'm not well
And I Think that I should tell you
That I got the raw end of the deal
Don't get me wrong
'Cause it's not like I blame you
But sometimes things get crazy on their own
I'm ashamed
Of the way I point my finger
'Cause deep down I have reaped what I have sown
Verse 2
Life is hard
But so is everything
Give my reguards to a man who cares
If I succeed
I will save my fellow man
And if I fail I'll just stand and stare
Verse 3
Such is life, Lord
And I know that you're aware
That you're a drug to me
A drug, within my fear
But, I Love you
A junkie to your silence
A wise man who's words, I'll never hear
What to do
I feel as if I'm floating
Not aware or in control of what I am
God bless me
Take me out of this existence
End my role as the sacrificial lamb
Verse 4
Life is hard
But so is everything
Give my reguards to a man who cares
If I succeed
I will save my fellow man
And if I fail I'll just stand and stare
Verse 5
...I'll just stand and stare...
Verse 6
Life is hard
But so is everything
Give my reguards to a man who cares
If I succeed
I will save my fellow man
And if I fail I'll just stand and stare
Verse 7
Life is hard
But so is everything
Give my reguards to a man who cares
If I succeed
I will save my fellow man
And if I fail I'll just stand and stare
Verse 8
...I'll just stand and stare...
