World besieged by flood
Jonah swallowed whole
A few thousand years later, seems there's no hope of control


Demon in my soul
Taking up the slack
Gotta find redemption -- get this monkey off my back


Chorus

So many voices -- it's hard to know which way to turn
Too many choices -- but when you stumble then you learn


Walkin' single file
On board two by two
Ancient generation in the search for something new


Ridin' down the road
Train rolls off the track
Tread the straight & narrow if you think you've got the knack


So many voices -- it's hard to know which way to turn
Too many choices -- but when you stumble then you learn

In the class by daybreak -- some learnin' to be done
Lookin' for exceptions to the rule


Weekend house of worship -- wanna just turn tail and run
Caught in an infernal, eternal holy duel

Victim on the run
Verge of breaking free
Inner metamorphosis -- it's such a sight to see


Closer day by day
Salvation within reach
Lost soul learns to holy roll, the lessons you could teach

So many voices -- it's hard to know which way to turn
Too many choices -- but when you stumble then you learn


So many voices -- it's hard to know which way to turn
Too many choices -- but when you stumble then you learn
