Lyrics

Phoenix Rising

Standin' naked on this shoutin' ground
A storm’s brewing and it's bearin' down
Better run for cover under shadow of the neon lights
Cos’ I’ll take what you give and give you my best
Just say the words and I’ll start makin’ a mess
I’m the seventh son of the seventh son of a bitch

Cos’ I can’t get this monkey off of my back
It’s a seven year itch that I can’t scratch
And there ain’t no doctor that can cure this social disease
As it spreads like a weed and lays down it’s roots
I walk over you in my snake skin boots
Tear out my heart and leave it bleedin’ on the stage

So say a prayer for me tonight
As I step from the darkness and into the light
I’m a phoenix risin’ ‘n takin’ flight
Gonna get left if I don’t get right
As I step from the darkness and into the light
I’m breakin’ the silence ‘n getting high

I stagger outside to have a smoke & a drink
While the moon drowns itself in a bottle of ink
And burns the night like a lonely flare hangin’ high
So I sip from a 80 proof bottle of soul
Half filled with lightenin’ the other with gold
Exhale & watch the smoke rings fumble & fade

So say a prayer for me tonight
As I step from the darkness and into the light
I’m a phoenix risin’ ‘n takin’ flight
Gonna get left if I don’t get right
As I step from the darkness and into the light
I’m breakin’ the silence ‘n getting high
High
High
