Who Wants To Live Forever

Life is filled with uncertainty

As dangers come and go

Tomorrow has not been promised

It isnít ours to know


The only thing each soul can do

Is live as they see fit

You can choose to live in shackles

Or face your fate with grit


And this is what defines us all

Our weakness or our strength

Will we retreat or stand our ground

Six feet apart in length


And who wants to live forever

With masks upon their face

In a never ending cycle

Of bondage and disgrace


Will we choose to take our chances

Against the dragonís rage

Iíd rather try to slay the beast

Than live inside his cage


The coward seeks to save his life

And to the beast submits

Iíd rather die with sword in hand

Than on a dragonís spit


So let him sling his pestilence

His power is a fraud

The weapon that I wield was wrought

Upon the forge of God


And on that forge God shaped my faith

The armor that I wear

A testimony that reflects

The covenant we share


For faith and courage are the same

The tip of our Lordís spear

But he who does not trust the Lord

Will face the end in fear

So what will be your destiny

Your tale is yet to tell

Will you defy the dragonís might

Of follow him to hell
