Watching time go and feeling belief grow
Rise above the obstacles.
People beseech me but they will never teach me
Things that I already know.
Dreams that have shattered, may not have mattered
Take another point of view.
Doubts will arise though, like chasing the rainbow
I can tell a thing or two that's "true"
You've got to believe in yourself
Or no one will believe in you.
Imagination like a bird on the wing
Flying free for you to use.
I can't believe they stop and stare
And point their fingers doubting me. Their disbelief suppresses them
But they're not blind, it's just that they won't see.
I'm a believer, I ain't no deceiver
Mountains move before my eyes.
Destiny planned out I don't need no handout
Speculation of the wise.
I'm a "believer" I ain't no deceiver !

New F'n York ! cool band there eth... thanks.
Havin' a ball yup, here is my story so far upon arriving at ats... well sort of but using some words from another now classic Thrash band from
I've made a few mistakes
Don't think I'll ever live them down
I'm a prisoner of guilt
To my past forever bound
To follow the straight and narrow was always on my mind
But I let my guard down, I tripped the line
Never ever thought I would take a fall
Didn't think it would happen, no I was too strong
Forever haunted by a beast on my back
Deceitful temptation, a planned attack
I'm a victim of the evil one
Can't turn around, live my life on the run
My mind's plagued with guilt
'Til the day I die
I want to live a better life
Believe me I try
Prayed that the past would soon disappear
No matter how hard I try
My memory is clear
The wicked law prevails
Intentions have turned sour
Intensity of evil grows
Stronger by the hour
Once again I've lost my balance
And stumbled to the ground
Will I ever be free?
How long shall I be bound?
A weak and spineless victim
Doing what I hate
Temptations - seize me and I become a slave
Succumbing - to human nature
Beast on my back
In agony I dwell
Beast on my back
This is a living hell
I've felt this way before
So empty inside
Trust the promises of the world
To find out that they've lied
The nightmare is now over
The scars shall never fade
Etched into my memory
Are the mistakes that I have made
What a wretched being
Trapped within this shell of death
Alas! The spirit of life
Freed from sin!
The fight is not yet over
But we'll win! Win!
of course there is always the triple entendre...
ats Rocks indeed
