Lyrics

ONCE UPON A TEARFUL TIME

VERSE 1
Two A.M., mind?s still on
Body?s tired, but I can?t sleep
Guess there?s nothing left to think
Guess I?ve fallen in too deep.

VERSE 2
There?s a light, a light that guides.
Follow it you shall be free
But the path is hard to find
That?s one of life?s great ironies..ironies.

VERSE 3
Once upon a tearful time
My mind was pure my heart was whole
Then you tried to take my life
Tried to take my very soul.

VERSE 4
Vengeance is mine saith the Lord
I know it?s true but even so
Sometimes I?d like to take a hand grenade
And blow you all new assholes.

BRIDGE
I know I must be strong
I can?t give in to what you want
I know nothing would make you smile
More than me crumbling down
So if you think you want to take me on
Baby, let?s rock and roll.
