lyrics

I don’t kneel upon the pavement, I won’t buy a man-made god
But if I’ve nothing to believe in how can I press on?
I don’t tend to follow leaders, I reckon it’s the way I’s raised
But if I’ve nothing to believe in how can I find faith?
I wanna sing the praises but I don’t know who to praise
So I’ll raise a glass to every sense with which we can embrace……
Tyger tyger burning bright, in the forest of the night
What immortal hand or eye dare frame thy fearful symmetry?
It’s hiding in the inner-city, you can find it in the deepest woods
But it’s hard to know which way to go
When you’re forced to read the book
I wanna sing the praises but I don’t know who to praise
So I’ll raise a glass to every sense with which we can embrace……
Tyger tyger burning bright, in the forest of the night
What immortal hand or eye dare frame thy fearful symmetry?
When the stars threw down their spears
And watered heaven with their tears
Did he smile, his work to see?
Did she who made the lamb make thee?
