The Years of Decay

On this road
Takes its toll
And you pay for everything you do
Under lights
Made me blind
This place is the same as last night
Of control
Takes its toll
But you learn to live with your dreams
And speaking your mind to those you find
Listening to what you have to say
I wouldn't change the way
I wouldn't stop the decay

The world
As our world
Changed before our eyes
And the days became the weeks
And the weeks the years
And no one remembers that very first day
How it slipped away
I wait
Putting in
Putting out as the motors whine
To remind me I'm home
And I'm here to stay
As we decay
Another day
Decay away

I'm goin' home
I don't know where
I'm goin' home
Not far from here
Out on this road
Payin' this toll
Make me whole
Set the stage
Fill it with anger
Fill it with rage
No I don't know what is today
I know it falls in the years of decay

Every night
And together we pay the price in blood
That's spilled out
Through the years
And another day passes away
Look to the black
Drawn farther back
Look to each day
See the decay
Times I've had
Good and bad
Win or lose
This is what I choose

The Years of Decay
(repeat and fade out)
