Struggling with confusion, disillusionment too
Can turn a man into a shadow, crying out from pain?

Through his nightmare vision, he sees nothing, only well
Blind with the beggar's mind, he's but a stranger
He's but a stranger to himself

Suspended from a rope inside a bucket down a hole
His hands are torn and bloodied from the scratching at his soul

    General Commentgreat Traffic song from the legendary album John Barleycorn Must Die. Frankly I don't understand how such a geniusly written song and instrumental track has gotten neglected from any posts.
