Nothing wrong with a good set of rules to help you make the right decisions in life but it's good to open your eyes now and then to see the truth and to stop and think about what you really believe and choose your own path in life. Wow, where did that come from? In a way this song's about recognizing your demons and facing them.


Now why I killed my friend?
Hailed from the promised land
A noose that would save me now
Save me now

Well he was long condemned
But unaware I went
‘Save me now
Save me now’

When I learned his name was Doctrine
I slayed him on the scene
Exclaiming ‘save me now
Save me now’

But more came and a plot they hatched
For all the lost sheep must be fetched
Pressed on to save me now
Save me now

I fled and on my trail
Cried through a midnights gale
‘Save me now
Save me now’

Now as the bright moon curves her arc
An angel descends, pale and dark
To save me now
Save me now
