lyrics

The Road Of Death
by John Hovorka

Along the shore, across the sea
And being who they appear to be
Faces fresh, and well composed
And whatever that may mean to me
The message short and well received
And whatever you may believe it to be
It is said, without regret
If it makes no sense,
To those who view it sensibly

Across the land, of waving grain,
Feel their pain, expressed expressively
They might attack, and won’t hold back
They are as he wants them to be
With no choice he is their voice
When their music is heard vocally
Or an instrument, they have been sent
For the parts they feel instrumentally

I don’t want to be here, all that much
So out of touch except for things on TV
And I don’t know, if it is so
But I know, how it looks to me

It’s the road of death, and I’m going down it
It’s the road of death, and I’m going down it
It’s the road of death, and I’m going down it
Yeah, you just watch me, yeah!

He’s in the air, he’s in the sky
He’s landing here because it’s where he wants to be
Impress the crowd, talk loud
With emphasis exactly where he needs it to be
His message clear, and never queer
And always right, until you think a bit
And ponder on, his well kept lawn
And whoever he is keeping off of it

I don’t want to be here, all that much
Stay informed, about things on a screen
I don’t know, if it is so
But I can tell, when its meaning is mean

It’s the road of death, and I’m going down it
It’s the road of death, and I’m going down it
It’s the road of death, and I’m going down it
Yeah, you just watch me, yeah!

It’s the road of death, and I’m going down it
It’s the road of death, and I’m going down it
It’s the road of death, and I’m going down it
Yeah, you just watch me, yeah yeah yeah!

It’s the...
