I have seen my own gravestone
and worshiped a golden statue
I've made my bed in the lion's den
and walked in dead man's shoes

I have witnessed the coastline
from a bird's eye view
And made the request that we plunge to our deaths
so that I could get to you

I will walk through the fire
I will not be afraid
They can take everything that I have
But they can't give me my name

I have climbed every bookshelf
In search of hardcover proof
And if I am judged by the things that I loved
I hope that some of them are true

Do whatever fulfills you
Make the most of each day
That's what we're taught since
before we could walk
but it will all fade away

    General CommentTo me this song seems to be a highlight of old testament people of great faith. He mentions making a bed in a lions den, and walk through the fire seems to be shadrack, mishack, and abendigo. However you spell their names. It seems that this song has been a very popular one on their new cd, Vagabonds. I really like this song too
