The Cradle of Humankind

Album: Speed Of Darkness (2011)
  • The sum of all my fears like dread, are from demons yet to come
    All the things I should've mentioned, wave goodbye and "we'll see you soon"
    It's the words I've never written that say more about myself
    Where empty is the promise, lies a pocket full of doubt

    So may the road I've yet to take
    Leave a smile across my face
    Till the laughter sheds the darkness far behind
    For I still belong in the cradle of humankind

    Though my time may be less traveled, than those that came before
    We're all exiles here in madness, kicking down each other's door
    Unforgiven is the lesson, we pour upon ourselves
    When a helping hand's is needed, a slap in the face is what we get

    But I will fight for this right and each moment of it's life
    Till I witness all the differences yet to heal
    So may the road I've yet to take
    Leave a smile across my face
    Till the laughter sheds the darkness far behind
    For I still belong in the cradle of humankind

    Sometimes drink till I am empty, grab another from the shelf
    Though I'm stuck in conversation, it's with myself and no one else
    Never listen to much reason till I hear it's last call
    When I notice that my ghost is still dancing on his own

    So may the road I've yet to take
    Leave a smile across my face
    Till the laughter sheds the darkness far behind
    For I still belong in the cradle of humankind

    Wherever you go
    Wherever you go
    Wherever you go
    Oh, wherever you go

    There will always be a roof and a dream above our heads
    As long as I'm breathing, then forever I'll be
    Ah, I will fight for this right and each moment of it's life
    Till I witness all the differences yet to heal

    So may the road we've yet to take
    Leave a smile across my face
    Till the laughter sheds the darkness far behind
    We still belong in the cradle of humankind Writer/s: Bridget A Regan, David R King, Dennis Casey, George Edward Schwindt, Matthew A Hensley, Nathen Maxwell, Robert Anthony Schmidt
