Still So Many Lives Away

Uli Jon Roth

Once somebody told me,
I read it in his eyes:
"Be careful what you're doing.
Don't ever criticise.
Forget all your illusions,
they're just a mad confusion.
Man is a killing beast
and there's no paradise'...
Chorus:
He thought he was a wise man
who had fought so many fights.
Yet he was just a child then
who hadn't yet escaped the night.
You're still so many lives away
You're still so many lives away
You're still so many lives away
And you're as blind as only man can be!
Yesterday I met him.
He hadn't changed his mind.
They didn't even let him
behold what he did find.
He'd lost his cars, he'd lost is wife,
he had lost everything
and nothing could remind you
that once they crowned him King...
Repeat chorus
He didn't recognise me,
I had to realise he
was staring like a mad man
at me who's just a sad man.
He threw a stone and he did moan
and finally he hit my bone.
He wouldn't listen and he screamed.
Shoutin' at the crowds it seemed.
And then he grabbed a knife
and robbed himself of life.
But he could only kill his flesh
and now his hatred stays quite fresh.
And he doesn't find relief, no, he doesn't
find relief.
And he doesn't find relief.
And he still cannot believe that
He's never been a wise man
Who hadn't fought any fights
And he was just a child then
Who hadn't yet escaped the night
You're still so many lives away
You're still so many lives away
You're still so many lives away
And you're as blind as only man can be!
