Sevendust – Prodigal Son lyrics

Passing through this life with so much regret
It feels like I haven't got over it yet
It takes so long for these wounds to heal
I'm knocking down walls, taking my time
I gotta get out of here

Where will I go?
Who will I become?
I'm coming on like an elephant gun

Reaching for the piece of mind that I can't find
The sun keeps fading away
Searching for a feeling that will never come
The return of the prodigal son

Last night the moon seemed to look so empty (yeah)
I fell into a pit of despair (going nowhere)
I never thought that these wounds would heal
I fell to my knees, the rain came down
I thought I could touch the sky

What have I done, why was I so wrong?
Hear the pop of my elephant gun!

Reaching for the piece of mind that I can't find
The sun keeps fading away
Searching for a feeling that will never come
The return of the prodigal son

Reaching for the piece of mind that I can't find
The sun keeps fading away
Searching for a feeling that will never come
The return of the prodigal son - the Prodigal Son!

This time has just begun
I finally found a feeling
The return of a Prodigal Son
