Dog Now Reverse


Words seem to dance away leaving only memories
The battle that I fought for you could never end that way
Father and brother watch me hold on tight
To your thunder and lightning you helped me through the night


The evil that I felt in man pulled me from that rock
The love I felt for her helped me reach the top
Spiritual awakening please bring me home
Your son has left to return to you alone


Spiritual awakening someday I’ll understand
Tears streaming from the heavens, mother earth turned to mud
Shale slipping and falling all around
Like sins cast into the fire burning to the ground


Music in my mind gave me direction where to go
Fire burning in my heart did not let me slow
Spiritual awakening will this ever end
Spiritual awakening who next will you send
