A Ballad from the Far East

Going to war, give 'em hell
Oh what what you gonna do, problem, problem
Dragons sleeping in my veins

It's just too damn long that's all, yeah
There's nothing special about the road

There's nothing special about the road
Rest assured these things I know
Until all is lost
Endangered species, caged in fright

New Years Ballad

Centuries old trees are common 
But centenarians on 
The street are a rare sight indeed,
As rare as it could be.
For hours slip and days melt away,
And as youthful spring fades,
Silver strands race to O’ertake. 
Faces once gleaming with dreams
Become creased and weary,  
So cherish each fleeting moment
To do good and repent!
Swap the temporal for the true, 
For an Eden of your own!
