I have battled with the demons for my soul
Like a soldier unafraid stood straight and tall
With strong convictions fought for what I thought was right and wrong
But I wonder when it stands in judgement hall
Will it go down as one too close to call?
I have faced that cunning ennemy called time
For awhile I held him cold and to a draw
As he rode away he said another place and day
Cause you can't erase the writing on the wall
Although this one was just too close to call.
--- Instrumental ---
As I wrestled with my deepest fear of life
I was captured by the shadows on the wall
I was brave but just the same I was glad when morning came
'Cause now and then the footsteps in the hall
Remind me it was just too close to call.
I have watched my mind dance too close to the edge
As I stood among the crowd to see it fall
Sometimes now I cling to what I hope is sanity
I stagger on this fine like that I walk
And wonder is it just too close to call?...
