Glory Road

A story seldom told, but not forgotten
Fate, like a storm cloud, passes over
Safe in our homes, we hide from thunder
But some feel the touch
Of the lightning

Raised on God and country, cornfed pledge allegiance to the home
Handed down memories, we were made to follow footsteps made of stone
With a blueprint of righteousness imprinted on my mind
And a copy of the good book, if I need to know why
But I can’t read the future through smoky painted glass
And I can’t stand to be counted if I’m sitting on my destiny

Glory Road
It winds through the tunnels of my mind
Glory Road
Holds everything I seek to find
Cobblestones unending
I’ll search to find the emerald door
That lies at the end of Glory Road

Dancing with the devil
Dos-I-do and fade to fiery gray
That hellish pit’s a tourist trap
Skip the crowds and walk away
Faith ain’t taught in Sunday school
It’s a lonely lesson learned
So don’t teach your kids to fear the fire
Teach them not to get burned
I can’t go through life pretending I’m a shadow of myself
If I can’t get to heaven without raising hell

Glory Road
It winds through the tunnels of my mind
Glory Road
Holds everything I seek to find
Cobblestones unending
I’ll search to find the emerald door
That lies at the end of Glory Road

A story seldom told, but not forgotten
Fate, like a storm cloud, passes over
Safe in our homes, we hide from thunder
But some feel the touch
Of the lightning

The head cheese. No, that doesn't sound right.
