BACK
A  MONK'S  SONG
stepped out of the city
rode into the night
isn't it a pity
when no one
gets it right

jumped off
of the mantle
got too lonely there
wrapped up in
those threads of fear
it just wasn't fair

shed my woes
and shed my clothes
and shed my fantasies
no one knows
just how it goes
when you've got
to be like me
you may find it in the temple, a cure for your disease
but with it goes all the woes 'cause you've got to be so free

stepped onto an other plane and landed on my head
somtimes life is such a pain it'd feel better to be dead
but I reached into my darkened soul just in time to find
the ruins of an other life of an other time

shed my woes and shed my clothes and shed my fantasies
someone knows how it goes when you've got to be like me
you may find him in the chapel, a cure for your disease
but with him goes all the woes 'cause you've got to be so free

stepped onto the holy ground with the mourning light
head was filled with unearthly sounds
it just seemed so right
reached up to the painted sky with my other mind
saved a bit of the sweet release for another time

shared my woes and shared my clothes and shared my fantasies
now everyone knows just how it goes when you've got to be like me
you'll find it in the chapel, a cure for your disease
and with it goes all the woes and you get to be so free
