Verse 1 Lyrics
There's a man in a world of pain
Can you hear it in the air
And the words he breathes?
Just a man nothing more, nothing less
But nonetheless lived his life with every drop he bleeds
But let me take you on a journey
Times of torment, times of pain
Where the history it rolls the clocks they never change.
He's lived his life the best he knows
Which always goes to show
You and I were not one and the same (No way!)

As the embers float around his weary head
Something's got to give cause every man has got to live
So wipe your head before you drop and give
Let me take you on a journey

Where the history it rolls
The clocks they never change
He's lived his life the best he knows
Which always goes to show
You and I were not one and the same (No way!)
