My sullen songs have taken me far down this darkened road
I have seen the campfires burning, I have heard the drunkards howl
I'm silent in my solitude, I'm quiet as a thief
I have stolen all these hours, I have gotten no relief
My crazy dreams and tragedies have taken me for a ride
But I can see strange glory on the other side
Oh, this has been my misery and the source of my pride
But all along I'm thinking that I've been taken for a ride
Why don't you take me when I'm willing?
Why don't you take me when I'm willing?
But like a stubborn beast when the barn is on fire
I might resist you when you try to save my life
I might resist you when you try to save my life
When the flames rise around us and I can't see the door
This is still my home and it has never burned before
Oh, this is where I've taken my solace and my peace
The walls are caving in but I am still a stubborn beast
Why don't you take me when I'm?
Why don't you take me when I'm willing?
