Goodnight, it seems that it won't be the last goodbye
How strange we see the hours fly, the voices slowly fade away
Still walking tall, come walk with me that royal rocky road
Dividing the evil from what's good and soon the judge will pass the score

I had the world in my hand, the peace and the power, a love divine
I had the land at my feet, but bad is bad when loose ends meet
One bad apple can spoil them all

How long will matter have the power over mind
How long before we leave the wars behind
The leaders write our history in blood
What would it take before science serve the matters of the heart
Instead of keeping half the world apart...
The other seeing profit as it's god

We had the world in our hands
The sea and the forest, the lonely land
We had the land at our feet
We had it all, but still it seems it's not enough
Enough for the most of us...enough for the most of us

    General CommentIs this from their gay half-fish half-bus album? what the fuck was that shit? i guess it just goes to show what happens when you name your band something as abysmal as "The Flower Kings"...you might as well name it "Homos" or "I suck cock for money" or "I own all of The Flower Kings' albums"
