SEARCHING FOR MY SOUL

Album version

The hawks in the sky are screaming
The sand is dripping blood
In the twilight's last gleaming
Feel like Noah before the flood
And why did this has to happen
Don't see any end in sight
I hold on to my family
Pray everything's gonna be alright

It's like a long an lonely highway
All dark and covered with snow
And my tank is damn near empty
I got a thousands miles to go
And I'm dancing with the devil
In the fire down below
And I'm praying for the morning
And I'm searching for my soul
I'm searching for my soul
Well I'm searching for my soul

Why can't I find an answer
Why can't I cut these ropes
Well I was waiting for some one to tell me
That there's still reason to hope
And I felt that bad wind blowing
All the shit in from the sea
Please god release me
Why can't you let me be

It's like a long an lonely highway
All dark and covered with snow
And my tank is damn near empty
I got a thousands miles to go
And I'm dancing with the devil
In the fire down below
And I'm praying for the morning
And I'm searching for my soul
I'm searching for my soul
Well I'm searching for my soul

The sky was full of lightning
There was a mighty thunder crack
I began to see things clearly
The world was lifted off my back
The Buddhist and the Muslim
The Christian and the Jew
We all must live as brothers
Well there ain't no chosen few

It's like a long an lonely highway
All dark and covered with snow
And my tank is damn near empty
I got a thousands miles to go
And I'm dancing with the devil
In the fire down below
And I'm praying for the morning
And I'm searching for my soul
Well I'm searching for my soul
Well I'm searching for my soul
Well I'm searching for my soul
Well I'm searching for my soul
Well I'm searching for my soul
Well I'm searching
