IN THE WAY OF MEN


In the way of men
this world is our home
and in it we've found
the cure for song
although we still sing
the meaning has gone
for much more I long
in the way of men


in the way of men
we are driven to know
the things we do not
have to know
our intellect grows
and we lose our souls
the more our minds win
in the way of men


in the way of men
life is black and white
we fight cause we know
you're wrong and I'm right
there is no in between
so you must lose
it's not to be mean
but I must win
in the way of men


we live by our will
and our desires are just
in finite minds
we exist cause me must
gods of this world
but insignificant the same
we gave up our souls
so who do we blame?


We tread off the path
in the way of men
we ensue God's wrath
in the way of men
we love ourselves
much more than the cause
to us we're like giants
and make our own laws


in the way of men
this world is our home
and it in we've found the cure for song
as our intellect grows
we've lost our souls
to original sin
in the way of men.
