Testament – The Ballad lyrics

I'm not one to say
Were my feelings are going when they wither away
I pray to see another day
My hearts feeling like a needle lost in the hay
Restrained to meet again
My friend do you think that we ever will
I know we are free...

The games are played with your life on the line
Some lose, you win if you keep on tryin
I don't mind doing the time, I'm happier being alive
Now I know the means to my oppression were all lies...
The only truth is your own most sacred lesson I've ever learned
I know we are free...

Yeah... Yeah... Don't go, no, don't look back... Just realize

I've been robbed, I've been fooled
I intent now to make my own rules
Daggers edge cut the life, I've been down that road... Too many times
What's to fear, fear no more
Show my conscience what fear's for
Now I know this is so real
What's done is done so do as you will!

I'm keeping alive! Go on, no, don't look back
Just realize, where you've gone
Where are you going to, No life's not done with you
You've only just begun, To live your life
For you...
