And they tell me I'm a man inside but I don't see it
And they tell me I'm a king inside but I can't feel it

I'll keep on walking until the lie you promised comes
I keep on walking, my love

And they tell me that peace will rise
But I can't see it
And they tell me there's a fire burning inside
But it's a long way down to feel it

Through the dropping bombs and the guns-shot songs will see it
Through the dropping bombs and the gun-shot songs they say you're
Sing a song, I'll keep on walking
Until the lie you promised comes
I'll keep on walking, my love, oh
I keep on walking until my time here is done
I keep on walking

And I'm heading for a breakdown
I don't really wanna live forever
And I'm heading for a breakdown, down...

And I'm heading for breakdown
Who really wants to live forever?
And I'm heading for a breakdown, down...

Breakdown... yeah...

Oh...

Oh, I'll keep on walking until the lie you promised comes
I'll keep on walking, my love
I'll keep on walking until my time here is gone
I keep on walking, my love

I keep on walking, I keep on walking on
I keep on walking on...

    General CommentI can not believe that no one has commented on any of Shirock's songs.

    Shirock will be something big. Their first album is great, and this song brings me to tears everytime I listen to it. I was listening to this song during my father's funeral, and the lyrics speaks for itself.

    General CommentI think that this is the point in the album where it becomes less a collection of songs, and more of a complete work, specifically at the lines "and I'm headed for a breakdown".

    However, I think Say it Out and Still Young are the songs that stand up better outside of the context of the album, whereas Man Inside needs the songs before and after it to have it's impact. (not necessarily listening to the whole album at once, but you have to have done that at some point to fully 'get' the song)

    General CommentGreat song.. For someone recently bereaved it means a lot. The line should read "until the light you promised comes"
