an ordinary son lyrics – black country communion

“an ordinary son”

hold my head up high
now i see you, drying off your eyes
four seasons, temper all my pain
and i have been sheltered … i accept the blame
for the tumbling dice
i put my ego aside
with fire and anger
i’ve shadowboxed you all my life
bring it on yourself, bring it on me
wrapped up in a box cause there’s nothing left for free
gonna dig a hole, gonna fall in the dirt
gonna redeem myself and rise upon the earth
and i feel, like the time has come
all ever wanted, was to be an ordinary son
know the wounds run deep
but i take solace, knowing that hill is not so steep
pale white cigarette, barn full of hay
but i knew i shouldn’t have been down there anyway
gone is the shadow that was cast over
and i just wanna live in tranquility
and i believe that we will
overcome
all the courageous
and all the forgiveness
walk with me
walk with me
so thank you for tending our survival
cause i know i took that bread from our table
