Lyrics

Lost Man

Written By: Nachman Solomon

Oh, he walks
the lonely roads
leading him into the new
deeper and deeper into the woods
pacing beyond belief
visuals arise of his past
sinking him under the sea
yet he knows or hopes for a better day to come.

Written By: HaMakor

Different roads all leading another way
I'm confused and I don't know which path to take
And the wind blowing us apart once again
But in the end we will all end up on the other side

My heart is broken,shattered into a million pieces
I look away, but can only see a dimming light
Yet the sun will shine, melting the ice in my heart
And the lion will roar to remind us of the one above

Where do we go from here
What do we do from here
Yet again i hear a whispering voice
welcome to the source

A change will come from inside of me
Peeling off the old skin
And I will rise just to shout it out loud
welcome to the source
