Neal Morse - The Conflict


I - Do you know my name

God took the Promised Land and put it in my
bloodstained hand
I can sell you grace for your soul or you'll burn in
hell far below

I'm your priest, I'm your king, I'm a Saint
This love your enemies thing's down the drain
Tell me, do you know my name?

Look I got two big horns like a lamb
Even though Peter was married I can't
Look I've got great big armiea like a General
I may have a mistress but at least I'm a hetero

I'm your priest, I'm your king, I'm a Saint
This love your enemies thing's down the drain
Tell me, do you know my name?
Tell me, do you know my name?
Tell me, do you know my name?
My name...Tell me...

II - Party to the lie

Who is this who challenges the ruling of the crown?
Father we must crush him and he never will be found

We must find a way, the man will surely pay
And when there's nothing left to try...
He must take it back, this is the only way
We can't be party to the lie
Party to the lie

Something burns inside of me that you don't understand
I'm under the authority o God and not of man

God will make away. He will decide my fate
And whether or not I live or die
I won't take it back, this is the only way
I can1t be party to the lie
Party to the lie

God will make away. He will decide my fate
And whether or not I live or die
I won't take it back, this is the only way
I won't be party to the lie
Party to the lie

III - Underground

Sun turns as black as the day
Night turns a cold steel gray
I wnt to stay
Where the sun cannot be found

Friends cover me in the night
In a castle of warm colored light
Here I will stay tucked away
I'm underground

I thought I was coming to die
And that's what tey're thinking outside
But I will stay lost
'Til it's safer to be found

Writing the book in the day
In words that my people can say
Here I will stay tucked away
I'm underground

IV - Two down, one to go

The woman's found a place to go
Where she's gone to nobody know
But Martin's words are like wild fire
Spreading fast as pine on the pyre
Two down, one to go

Columbo sailed in '92
Guttenberg did his thing too
And Calvin came on right away
The human clock reads a whole nother day
Two down, one to go

The woman fled into the dark
From the darkness of man's heart
But she's coming from her hideaway
And I believe she still is today
Two down, one to go
Two down, one to go
Two down, one to go

V - Vineyard

A wild boar has entered in the vineyard
We'll burn his books and skin him alive
And we'll do him like all the rest
He never more will rise

You are Babylon the destroyer
You destroyed the truth with all of your lies
And will go down to the grave
And never more will rise

A wild boar has entered in the vineyard
We'll burn his books and skin him alive
And we'll do him like all the rest
He never more will rise

VI - Already home

I stand accused I'm beaten used and tired
They took on my words and threw them in the fire
As they cast me down there's somethind found within me
They can grind me to dust but life is just biginning

There is a truth that I'm feeling: love full of
healing
Somewhere I've never known
As I surrender completely: pure and it's easy
Like I'm already home
I'm already home

Take me away I want to stay by the water
If I pass on won't you tell my sons and daughters
When I am gone you all must go on believing
Lay down you life 'cause love is what gives it meaning

There is a truth that I'm feeling: love full of
healing
Somewhere I've never known
As I surrender completely: pure and it's easy
Like I'm already home
There is a place full of knowing: like it was snowing
Waking me up at last
And as the pages keep turning: yielded and yearning
Washing away the past

There is a truth that I'm feeling: love full of
healing
Somewhere I've never known (Already home)
As I surrender completely: pure and it's easy
Like I'm already home (I'm already home)
There is a place full of knowing: like it was snowing
Waking me up at last (Already home)
And as the pages keep turning: yielded and yearning
Washing away the past(I'm already home)

Oh God
I seek the glory that's from you and from you only
Oh God
I seek the glory that's from you
I'm already home...

    General CommentThe fact that you would write such a thing proves you do not even begin to understand Neal Morse or what he's writing about.
