Wise men say these are the facts of life
What ya can't read, you gotta write
What you don't know can hurt you, welcome to the wasteland
Hail Mary, hear me now - I'm in need of Sanctuary
Yes, these are hard times to be livin' in
Out in the Wasteland where love's a give away
I fall on my face like a rebel in the dirt

Sanctuary, Give me some protection
Baby, Baby cover me

Feelin' lost and so afraid
Just tryin' to keep the handle on the blade
Been such a long time runnin'
Behind these walls inside of me
Ain't nothin' clear as far as I see
Looks like a storm cloud breakin'
Off in the distance, I hear a drivin' beat - a drivin' beat
The sun goes down like a rebel in the dirt

Sanctuary, Give me some protection
Baby, Baby cover me
Sanctuary, Give me some affection
by, Baby shelter me
Heartache gonna worry me down -- I don't like it

Show me mercy, peace of mind
Stand beside me in these troubled times
Give me a reason to believe in now
Love and affection, they seem so far away, so far away
All I can do just to make it through the night

Sanctuary, Give me some protection
Baby, Baby cover me
Sanctuary, Give me some affection
Baby, Baby shelter me
