Extraordinary Times - by Colin Lake, Wax Wane Music (BMI)

A coat of armor, a heart of steel

If you’re gonna’ use your sword then be ready oh to use your shield

Where we’re going, we can’t discern

Seems like a bottleneck ahead beyond the point of no return


You don’t hear no stories ‘bout men from ordinary times

The time has passed for lookin’ out through ordinary eyes

Look to your heroes, and courage you may find

May your spirit lead you through extraordinary times

Who we are, we don’t even know

Seems like we wandered off the path and lost our way some time ago

What may unite us, are the wounds we bare

But still we’re fighting with each other in the shadows of what we share


Falling out of favor, running out of time

Nothing comes easy when you’ve fallen so far behind
