Lyrics

Faded man

Written By: Jeffrey Jones

The shadowed past is all he sees
Reminding him of who he was
Knowing now that he can be
A faded man with a cause
Timing changes everything
Coming through from the dark
Making sense in songs he sings
Visible as the brightest spark

A faded man behind the mask
Wondering if his time will last
Sitting feeling kinda numb
Begging for his time to come
Patiently he sits and waits
Asking how long does it take
Praying daily for his life
Trying not to lose the fight
A faded man behind the mask
Wondering if his time will last
Sitting feeling kinda numb
Begging for his time to come
Patiently he sits and waits
Asking how long does it take
Praying daily for his life
Trying not to lose the fight

Days on end he prays again
To whoevers listening
Everyday through thick and thin
Time is only glistening
He hits his knees and wonders when
The floor so hard and dark
It takes so long that on his skin
The floor slowly leaves its mark

A faded man behind the mask
Wondering if his time will last
Sitting feeling kinda numb
Begging for his time to come
Patiently he sits and waits
Asking how long does it take
Praying daily for his life
Trying not to lose the fight
A faded man behind the mask
Wondering if his time will last
Sitting feeling kinda numb
Begging for his time to come
Patiently he sits and waits
Asking how long does it take
Praying daily for his life
Trying not to lose the fight

The man he takes his final stand
Knowing it will be his last
Looking for someone to hold his hand
So he may endure the blast
He finds noone left in his world
Just him sitting all alone
Suddenly he finds his life unfurled
He feels it hit the bone

A faded man behind the mask
Wondering if his time will last
Sitting feeling kinda numb
Begging for his time to come
Patiently he sits and waits
Asking how long does it take
Praying daily for his life
Trying not to lose the fight
A faded man behind the mask
Wondering if his time will last
Sitting feeling kinda numb
Begging for his time to come
Patiently he sits and waits
Asking how long does it take
Praying daily for his life
Trying not to lose the fight
