	Mama, they try and break me
	The window burns
	To light the way back home
	A light that worms
	No matter where they've gone
	They're off
	To find the hero of the day
	But what if they should fall
	By someone's wicked way

	Still the window burns
	Time so slowly turns
	And someone there is sighing
	Keepers of the flames
	Do ya feel your names ?
	Can't you hear your babies crying ?
	
	Mama, they try and break me
	Still they try and break me
	
	Scuze me while
	I tend to how I feel
	These things return to me
	That still them real
	Now deservingly this easy chair
	But the rocking stopped
	By the wheels of despair
	
	Don't want your aid
	But the fist I've make for years
	Can't hold or feel
	No, I'm not all me
	So please excuse me
	While I tend how I feel
	
	But now the dreams
	And waking screams
	That ever last the night
	So I built the wall, behind it crawl
	And hide until it's light
	So can you hear your babies cryin' now ?
