about

There comes a point where you have to face the things you've done in your life. And you have to face them alone.

lyrics

Facing The Lions

Your philistine father
And his primitive curse
Your psychotic mother
And her fear of the hearse
Your unbearable burdens
Your unquenchable thirst
Now you’re standing alone
A long way from home
And you’re facing the lions

Your ill advised liaisons
Your mistaken beliefs
Your pharisee lovers
Your bottomless grief
Your romantic rebellions
Your chaotic defeats
Now you’re lost in the night
No rescue in sight
And you’re facing the lions

Out in the arena
The battle’s gone wrong
You’re facing the lions
Armed with only a song

Your outrageous behavior
Your mercurial whims
Your imperfect nature
And your Judas-like friends
Your auspicious beginnings
Your untimely end
Now you’re standing alone
A long way from home
And you’re facing the lions
Ah you’re lost in the night
No rescue in sight
And you’re facing the lions
