You came out of the world to me
My life parted like the Red Sea
We flowed easy between the rocks and stones
Never seemed to stop us

The years ended in confusion
Don't ask me, I don't know what happened
But I am a man with a mission
Must be the devil, I don't know

Find him marching to a different tune
It's hard to let go all that we know
As I walk away from you
I hurled from my home to the unknown
As I walk away from you

Reveal whatever you desire
To you it may be death defying
Black day in the coldness of winter
Black words slipping off my tongue

I say, "Forget it, it's over"
As a dark cloud covered up the sun

You know that it's
It's hard to let go all that we know
As I walk away from you
The sun always sets with room for regrets
As I walk away from you

Give it to me, give it to me
Your inspiration
Give to receive, find all we need
I walk away, as I walk away

I'm just a slave to ambition
Tension, your permanent condition
So much you've always wanted
Too much, given you a sore head

I walk away, as I walk away from you
As I walk away from you
As I walk away from you
