“There’s no fortune at the end of the road that has no end…”

I went on the search for something true.  

I was almost there when I found you.

Sooner then my fate was wrote

Perfectly it slit my throat

And beads of lust released into the air.

When I awoke you were standing there.

I was on the mend when I fell through.
The sky around was anything but blue.

I found as I regained my feet

A wound across my memory

That no amount of stitches would repair.

But I awoke and you were standing there.

 

There’s no fortune at the end of the road that has no end.

There’s no returning to the spoils

Once you’ve spoiled the thought of them.

There’s no falling back asleep

Once you’ve wakened from the dream

Now I’m rested and I’m ready,

I’m rested and I’m ready to begin.

I’m ready to begin.

 

I went on the search for something real.

Traded what I know for how I feel.

But the ceiling and the walls collapsed

Upon the darkness I was trapped

And as the last of breath was drawn from me

The light broke in and brought me to my feet.

There’s no fortune at the end of the road that has no end.

There’s no returning to the spoils

Once you’ve spoiled the thought of them.

There’s no falling back to sleep

Once you’ve wakened from the dream.

Now I’m rested and I’m ready

I’m rested and I’m ready

Yeah I’m rested and I’m ready

I’m rested and I’m ready

Yeah I’m rested and I’m ready

I’m rested and I’m ready

To begin.

I’m ready to begin.
