Verse 1

in a world full of up side downs
I see myself endlessly spinning around
taking onboard lots of water to bail out the swimmers
although I can't swim , I might end up rather down

Verse 2

and my life's been a story of books
no one looks , no one looks
and we all have a part left to play
and at the end of the day , when the curtain closes , no one will notice or remember my name

Chorus
so fade out the lights on my show
and take off my makeup and clothes
I've played all the fools and dance at the ball
here alone I sit on the wall
just wipe away all of my tears
I have no one to fear but my years
the lines on my face , don't hold any grace
as father time knows who I am

Verse
some one said that one day I'll make good
the way always famous showman should
the film has to end and the friends have the send their goodbye's
no more laughter just tears wiped away
the clown in his suits had his day
smiles are now frowns , left walking around
the curtain closes and just left to fall


Chorus
so fade out the lights on my show
and take off my makeup and clothes
I've played all the fools and dance at the ball
here alone I sit on the wall
just wipe away all of my tears
I have no one to fear but my years

as father time knows who I am

the day of the showman has died

Verse 1

just try to keep calm in an insane moment
and stay holding all the cards in my hands
trying to make light of the moment
trying to make love understand

Verse 2

Don't walk away from me now
the space seems ever so clear
but I have no reasons to stay
and nothing left to fear

Chorus
and as painful as it may seem
you used me , all the same
it wasn't just a game
for us both to play
and I'm sometimes lost with out you
when we all seem to loose
standing alone here without you
nothings new , nothings new


Verse 3

I can take back all my words that upset you
if it helps to draw you back , its worth a shot
but is a two way street that we walk down
we can look forward to what we might make



Chorus
and as painful as it seems
you used me , all the same
it wasn't just a game
for us both to play
and I'm sometimes lost without you
when we all reflect upon what we might loose
standing alone here without you
nothings new , nothings new

Verse 1
The Tides are changing
broken waves
winds of power
nothing to gain
look at the climates
speaking aloud
having no harmony
making no sound


Chorus
Winds of the Gods , are just moving around
showing their anger ,showing a frown
telling us why we must listen to heed
that this is our home , its all that we need
only one chance to listen and learn
with prudence in tow , taking a turn
to all of our peers please open your eyes
the future is ours , don't compromise ,don't compromise


Verse 2
so listen , so listen ,so listen to your heart
the fools only say , that no ones to blame
mother earth is calling loudly our name
this ain't no practice , please join the game

Verse 1

When I walk amongst you loud in all my pride
I have nothing in my heart left to hide
and you gave up your spirit and soul
to make freedom for all your main goal

Verse 2
and in rows upon rows lining clear
forever lying in state to endear
the pride of good hope ,the world just to cope
with their gratitude beyond one can compare

Chorus

And in the face of God and justice to be
we owe you much more than we can see
to share with you now , some feelings of how
we are overwhelmed with emotion with thee
And the lives sacrificed in all hope
families with love left to cope
Memories may fade , but history stays for all time


Verse 3
and a rose grows so strong and still true
someone sings out a song just for you
and flags fly up high , beyond clouds , beyond sky
for ages of old ,young and new

Chorus

And in the face of God and justice to be
we owe you much more than we can see
to share with you now , some feelings of how

Verse
no other love can compare
the warmth of her touch and the feel of her hair
slipped away from me every day
now at peace in her own special way

Verse
and she was there when I wanted to cry
there when my father died
kept me strong when things didn't go right
read me stories and held me at night


Chorus
and I know that I have to let go
the mother that I have always known
you kept me safe , kept me solid and strong
my best friend ,we would always belong

Piano bridge ( soft music )

Verse
Empty feelings and times of despair
I can sense you and take in the air
just needing you more as I go
memories and love just to show

Verse

and my world seems so empty without you
you gave me the meaning in life
my world that had a purpose to love
taken from me , like the cut of a knife

Chorus
and I know that I have to let go
the mother that I have always known
you kept me safe , kept me solid and strong

Verse
why am I here in this mess ,I only came in for a test
and all that I've had , and all that I've seen , leaves me cold
and while did you tell me to go , when I had nothing to show
and all that I've had , and all that I've seen , leaves me cold


Verse
and the hours go by in my life , I will never get them back if I try
and all that I've had , and all that I've seen , leaves me cold
and why did you tell me to go , when I had nothing to show
and all that I've had , and all that I've seen , leaves me cold

Chorus
so am I you , are you me , I have no clue
some body told me I'm you
switched at my birth , the wires just crossed into two.
and my life seems its turned upside down
no ones laughing as I'm just the clown
as confusion come clear , I've nothing to fear when I'm down


Verse
my mother calls my name with no sense
here from the other side of the fence
she smiles with a grin and a frown
or are we just playing around

Verse
and the hours go by in my life , I will never get them back if I try

dance round the flames of a fire
set loose from the camps of the crow
hunters by nature
seasoned by capture
we are the storm , we are the storm , we are the storm of the American Crow

black as the night sky
eyes like the hawk
piercing in sharpness
noise of a squawk
we are the storm , we are the storm , we are the storm of the American Crow

Chorus
As we ride out the plains
the flight of the tempest
to shake you in every way
you must leave or be weary
we come with the fear and the hardest of hard bleaker days

we are the storm , we are the storm , we are the storm of the American Crow
we are the storm , we are the storm , we are the storm of the American Crow

Nice guitar music bridge

mystery surrounds us , the day that we leave you
your worlds will all fall apart
and when the night of the dead is once more upon us
we will be out just having more fun
we will be out just having more fun
we are the storm , we are the storm , we are the storm of the American Crow

Chorus
As we ride out the plains
the flight of the tempest
to shake you in every way
you must leave or be weary
we come with the fear and the hardest of hard bleaker days
and we come to you now in your senses
the spells to be triggered at dawn
and the witches and warlocks move out before us
to make way as our show is reborn

we are the storm , we are the storm , we are the storm of the American Crow
we are the storm , we are the storm , we are the storm of the American Crow

we are the storm , we are the storm , we are the storm of the American Crow
we are the storm , we are the storm , we are the storm of the American Crow

the priests are in town
looking around
blood on the ground
checking the flesh that's new
please help me save my soul

my woman looks for me
wanting some love
holding a hand out
only demands
please help me save my soul

and the tax man calls in to see me
he wants only rules
to govern my day
and make me pay
please help me save my soul

Rock Music bridge

so why am I here with you now
no places left to go
and wisdom is already here
no need to fear
someone will save my soul

all the lights have gone out
why do we shout
nobody will listen and nobody will work this out
when the soul seeker comes knocking around
please help me save my soul, please help me save my soul

and all the lights have gone out
why do we shout
nobody will listen and nobody will work this out
when the soul seeker comes knocking around
please help me save my soul, please help me save my soul

and all the lights have gone out
why do we shout
nobody will listen and nobody will work this out
when the soul seeker comes knocking around
someone will save my soul, someone will save my soul
