Through the tunnel of time
You know that reluctance was set in line
And the fields shimmered in sheets of gold

Walked windy beaches
Followed paths where lonely preachers
Deserted the will of the world

An instinct destined since birth
Which drove me to the edge of the earth

Where I
met one man
A world of wisdom knew his land
Shattered eyes, broken love, withered hands

I encountered another
The dyeing patience's younger brother
Who's greatest flaw was his bloody thoughts and rage

He formed a circle
formed a hole in my mind
It ain't easy but we'll be fine
Oh, well so you said

Towards the path
The crashing sea
To walk the pathway or ponder the streets
Well we live on superstitious needs

Forever digging out of glooms path
Where success brought wisdom and broken hearts

Well I ventured valleys entangled wild
Where fated death had struck a child

I survived oceans and flowing streams
Whose intended target was to shatter my dreams

My dreams, pure in soul, plans unfold
Pain takes place, increases the pace, Superstition inspires
Exposes the liars, the weary in mind, the naked inside
Too late to hide, conclusion is drawn, an oath is sworn
And fear is formed

And fear is formed
Within the expectations on boys and girls
But I'll survive your thrust your hurl
The wind did howl as did my tears
But no longer does this bring blood to my ears

Because I live on Superstitious needs
Well I live on Superstitious needs
Well I live on Superstitious needs
