lyrics

I was chilling with the organ grinder`s monkey,
sipping-on- imported wine from hungary,
contemplating my soon death,
when I thought came to my head, (it went)
ha, is there all there is?
Should I fall to bits, and call it quits,
But then I saw it was all a risk,
the bigger the bet you make then the better it is,
and from that point I started living with passion,
tired of being tied down with limited action,
I made a switch from a literal has been,
to living in the middle of a pivotal path and,
I was 21, not a boy, not man yet,
near the age of hamlet at his last breath,
and that day, my path changed,
...What happened I still can`t say….

Chorus
But down came a one winged angel, angel,
to lay my fate on the table, table
he said you can be kain or be able,
he said any mistake could be fatal…
and I said,
Take me higher,
Make me someone,
Take my sorrow,
Free me from this form of flesh and blood.

Verse 2:
Up to then….
..everything had been irrelevant,
just another man crawling in the sediment,
but in a second, everything went venomous,
till I saw past self without resemblance,
my sentiments were gone, living different phase,
chapter 2, all I had to was flip the page,
and now I burn like the glowing sun,
and smoulder like the tip of a loaded gun,
and I was broken once left cold and numb,
untill I sold my soul for a token sum,
….. so now I live with grace,
like a black swan swimming on crystal lake…

Chorus
cuz….
down came a one winged angel, angel,
to lay my fate on the table, table
he said you can be kain or be able,
he said any mistake could be fatal…
and I said
Take me higher,
Make me someone,
Take my sorrow,
Free me from this form of flesh and blood

But…..
Verse 3:
I spent years in front of heaven`s gates sleeping on the steps,
dreaming I was blessed, fiending for the best,
Waking in the morning with a fever with sweat,
with all sorts crazy thoughts creeping head,
and at times when I think I should leave this all to rest,
I find another addiction to relieve me from the stress,
so believe me when i tell you how deep this really gets,
now leave me to my….. DEATH….
