The dream it shot right through me like a message so divine
My blinkers cast aside and some steel put in my spine
I jumped into my new world like a pioneer on speed
And cast off from the darkness Destined to succeed

I picked up some companions and told them of my plans
Of those that believed me cut the rope from round their hands
Well soon the numbers grew and the ship was hard to steer
But still it seemed too easy the path was always clear

(Chorus)
We sang and we danced
For the friends all gone by
We drank and chanced
Till the day that it died
We sang and we danced
For the friends all gone by
We drank and chanced
Till the day that it died

Locked inside the smoke filled room we began to find our way
With a hit of inspiration from a distance far away
From the garage to the caravan to the basement of the hall
Our destination clearer and the world was getting small

Excess follows success though we tried it in reverse
My faith was being tested and my destiny was blurred
The postman brought me trouble sent from Italy
My Achilles had returned for another shot at me

(Chorus)

Sleepless intoxication had become to take its toll
Open to manipulation for my Achilles to take control
I managed to turn things around but I don't know if I won
Things had already gone too far and the damage had been done

In the weakness I disclosed my companions showed unrest
Demanded from me a sacrifice a true believers head
They offered me a bribe the bribe I did take
and sacrificed my self instead cut off my nose to spite my face

(Chorus)

When the war was over everyone had lost
For the pandemonium we witnessed we paid a bitter cost
It was just me and the believer traveling down the road
but the believer stopped believing and I was on my own

(Chorus)

Thanks

I thought these lyrics would be quite hard to understand. It's written about a band I formed with friends some years back which broke up quite in quite a bitter way.

I've noticed you've got some great lyrics going on by the way. Swan song is great.
