Don't worry, dear he'll never find the gun

A child alone in daddy's room
The gun was hidden here
No one home to catch me when I fall

A young man now in a private chair
I've seen the world through a bitter stare
But my dream is still alive
I'm going to be the best I can

I want to be a busy man
I want to see a change in the future
I'm gonna make the best of what I have
I want to write for a magazine
I'm gonna be the best they've ever seen
I know I'll win if I give it all I can

I won't let go
Gotta make the grade, no I won't let go
To be the best man, the best man that I can

Back street hoop star you've got it good
You were the wonder of the crumbling neighborhood
Now taking bids on the next six digit plan
Showed me that my will survived
The tragedy that came into my life
Giving me hope and the new start that I have

And I won't let go
Gotta make the grae no, I won't let go
To be the best man, the best man that I can

Step by step I dream the plan
From my chair to walking man
This constant dream is on my mind
Chase the light I see ahead
Luminate the path I tread
I live to be the best I can

Now I'm moving forward and I'm never looking back
Straight ahead, focused on the big attack
On a roll and I'm never slowing down
I won't be torn between
The man in the chair and the man that's in my dream
I'm going to melt the two men into one

And I won't let go
Gotta make the grade I set no, I won't let it go
To be the best man,
The best man that I can
The best man that I can
The best man that I can

    General CommentThe last part of the song sounds like a warped interpretation of how God views us.
    One of God's names in the Bible is "I Am" -but-
    totally inaccurate view of how he sees us.

    Someone who THINKS they are God may be this way...

    Clearly, this guy is full of himself and thinks everyone wants, needs, to know more about him.

    Maybe it's everyone's vanity side.

    General Commentthe arrogant omnipresence of modernism and how we are all slaves to it- my and strictly my opinion- this is the underlying theme of the entire promised land album

    Song MeaningGeoff Tate said that this song describes the band. How there is no other band quite like Queensrÿche. They are themselves and not anything else. They are stating their individuality. The first verse does seem like a bunch of random crap thrown together to make lyrics I must confess.
