Praying Mantis – Wasted Years lyrics

Deep into my soul
I search for what remains
Once a heart so pure, bad blood now in my veins
WonDering what I ll finD
A world that's changed in line
This man has yet to live, just still a child in time

I believed that things would turn arounD
But hope that faded every day
I survived with madness close behinD
Which man did I really betray

I've tasted death, I d fought anD I'd won
Died for this day, this day to come

I have waited for this moment in time
I could have cried a thousanD tears
But this freedom now, is all I 'll ever need
Redemption of these wasted years

A Life has passed me by
My youth had been anD gone
The bitterness is deep, it drives me on anD on
In realms of power, I was the sacrifice
The cheating of innocent, the loaded dice

I believed that things would turn arounD
But hope that faded every day
I survived with madness close behinD
Which man did I really betray

I've tasted death, I d fought anD I d won
Died for this day, this day to come

I have waited for this moment in time
I could have cried a thousanD tears
But this freedom now, is all I ll ever need
Redemption of these wasted years
