You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
I've
been living on the edge so long
Where the winds of limbo roar
And I'm
young enough to look at
And far too old to see
All the scars are on the
inside
I'm not sure if there's anything left of me
Don't let these
shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some
leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating up our
brains
Oh, please don't let these shakes go on
You ask me why I'm
weary, why I can't speak to you
You blame me for my silence
Say it's time
I changed and grew
But the war's still going on dear
And there's no end
that I know
And I can't say if we're ever...
I can't say if we're ever
gonna to be free
Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break
from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the
flames
We've been eating out our brains
Oh, please don't let these shakes
go on
You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
My energy's
spent at last
And my armor is destroyed
I have used up all my weapons and
I'm helpless and bereaved
Wounds are all I'm made of
Did I hear you say
that this is victory?
Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a
break from it
Send me to the rear
Where the tides of madness swell
And
been sliding into hell
Oh, please don't let these shakes go on
Don't let
these shakes go on
Don't let these shakes go on
