Sitting

Oh I'm on my way, I know I am
Somewhere not so far from here
All I know is all, I feel right now
I feel the power growing in my hair

Sitting on my own not by myself
Everybody's here with me
I don't need to touch your face to know
I don't need to use my eyes to see

I keep on wondering if I sleep too long
Will I always wake up the same or so?
And keep on wondering if I sleep too long
Will I even wake up again or something?

Oh I'm on my way, I know I am
But times there were when I thought not
Bleeding half my soul in bad company
I thank the moon I had the strength to stop

I'm not making love to anyone's wishes
Only for the god I see
'Cause when I'm dead and lowered in my grave
That's gonna be the only thing that's left of me
