Let no one say
I haven’t made my way
And I tell it – tell it like it is
Let no one claim
I haven’t played the game
Let no one say, “the pleasure wasn’t his”

I was stopped in my tracks
By a man with a mask
And his blade cut me to the curb
But I was revived
I’m still alive
And not a bit disturbed

If I fall off that horse
I just get right back on
That big ol’ saddle
And ride into the dawn
If I ever lose my way
Off the beaten path
I walk that dusty trail
‘Til I make it back

Let no one say
There is a brighter day
In the past – that outshines what’s to come
Let no one claim
There is a name
More important than any other one

Back then in aught 3
I lost my memory
And I’m slowly
Gaining it back
I had to go abroad
I had to applaud
The inventors
Of the color black

Let no one say
That Marshall Ney
Didn’t raise me to think and act like him
Let no one claim
That was ever my aim
I don’t make decisions based upon a whim

I see his sword held high
Under the blackened sky
The sun was so temporary
This afternoon
I reject the family trade
My blood’s upon his blade
And I’ll be forming
A new life real soon
