Lyrics

Cadillac Life

Written By: Nathan Lehoux and Mark Gormely

Verse 1:
You crossed the line and the song was sung
Set the world on fire with the sound of your tongue

Angel on the corner tryin' to change your mind
But the devil on your shoudler's got you bought with a dime

Rock at the party and roll with the fans
King of the sugar and spice
Just another easy rider in the Cadillac life

Verse 2:
The suit and tie, you know, it suits you fine
Got a Bently for the freeway and a Rolex for time

Office in the corner with a view of the land
Keep your eyes on the prize and never tip 'em your hand

Fight like a dog just to live like a man
Only the strong will survive
Just another easy rider in the Cadillac life

Bridge:
This world will try and get the best of you
To disregard your heart and what is true
As you drive that corporate Caddy down the road
You'll find that everthing that glitters isn't gold

The Curtain

Written By: Nathan Lehoux

Verse 1:
Well, it’s dark tonight, the darkest I remember
Since I came here some thirty years ago
See, you feel a little farther that I’m used to
This carpenter is far away from home

You and I, we spoke the world in motion
And now it’s this old world that’s killing me
We built a man and loved him like and ocean
And now they all just want to watch me bleed

Chorus:
How could it start like this?
How could it end like that?
Tonight’s the night I lay down
The Lion for the Lamb

You know I want to run
God, all my closest friends are fading
I’m the one who’s left here waiting
On the curtain to fall


Verse 2:
As I stumble in the garden, Lord, I wonder
Am I the One of whom the angels sing?
‘Cause with the blood that’s running softly down my shoulders
I’m not feeling like a Son, much less a King

Verse 3:
Well, the manger is still burning in my memory
And the roll of Peter’s boat on Galilee
And the laughter of the children on my shoulders
I die tonight so I can set them free

End Chorus:
I know it starts like this
I know it ends like tha
Tonight’s the night where I become
The perfect spotless Lamb

You know it’s almost done
I know your open arms are waiting
They never knew that they were waiting
O-o-o-oh

I know it starts like this
I know it ends like that
Tonight’s the night I lay down
The perfect spotless Lamb

You know it’s almost done
I know Your open arms are waiting
They never knew that they were waiting
For the curtain to fall
