And if you're taking a walk through the garden of life
What do you think you'd expect you would see?
Just like a mirror reflecting the moves of your life
And in the river reflections of me

Just for a second a glimpse of my father I see
And in a movement he beckons to me
And in a moment the memories are all that remain
And all the wounds are reopening again



We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

And as you look all around at the world in dismay
What do you see, do you think we have learned
Not if you're taking a look at the war-torn affray
Out in the streets where the babies are burned



We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

There are time when I feel I'm afraid for the world
There are times I'm ashamed of us all
When you're floating on all the emotion you feel
And reflecting the good and the bad


Will we ever know what the answer to life really is?
Can you really tell me what life is?
Maybe all the things that you know that are precious to you
Could be swept away by fate's own hand



We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers


When you think that we've used all our chances
And the chance to make everything right
Keep on making the same old mistakes
Makes untipping the balance so easy
When we're living our lives on the edge
Say a prayer on the book of the dead



We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

And if you're taking a walk through the garden of life....

    This sought of sums up a lot of my life and what may happen to me probably but I will keep speeding till I get the answer I believe it also means all England should stand as one and as for blood brothers sought of sounds like angels maybe but that common rifle bullet whistled past my ear as I was walking back from my mates juother day whats the matter can't do it up close and personal I could and would anyway i am the wayward son if It's going down like that at least tell me your address and whom you are everyone knows where I live I make no secret of it how about I hunt you or for the hell of it start knifing men that say anything bad about me random attacks what about that? From spider.
    I love it on the edge you feel more alive my life would be boring without it so bring it on what you waiting for but remember I am very intelligent I could be A asset to A to A baseball and football team if you get my drift and believe me i am use full but to me it sounds like A threat well talk is cheap actions speak louder than words so I will carry on being wired I have A man that keeps me wired I love it got over me newly ex mrs iam free to do what ever I please now and I should what will be will be I've lived with the pressure and broken through the barriers now I just could not give A fck just need to find the right bird for me cause I loved the last one but she stitched me up and couldn't stop flirting war is fun I get off on sex violence business and speed thoughts are the things that make me tick and love and also mindgames riddles etc carry on it entertains me A normal life is A boring life why be normal some people think iam insane but I am more with it than you think speed is A performance enhancing drug that's why athletes aren't aloud to take it. I will carry on as normal as I do for me the more pressure and pain is character building but not for the weak as is the many the few like myself can handle it!

    The meaning is personal. I think about my twin brother and what it has meant for us to be brothers. Trying to have each other's back growing up.

    It's about two guys with the rifle in their name,fighting against evils of this world. And as they try to rid this world of evil they only encounter more and more bad things. Even the things they thought they were good ones,like angels,turned out to be really bad. Their road is filled with dissapointent in life,they go deeper and deeper into the spiral of evil,and no matter how hard they try they never get back on the right track. And while all this is happening 'carry on my wayward son' is playing in the background :)
