Lyrics

Took a ride down White Horse Lane
On a 4 day trip without my brain
Stealin' time away from everyday
Seeing things time out of mind
I thought I had at least one more time
To straighten up and try to make things right
Mr. Nemesis I don't like your kind
I call myself leavin' you behind the lines
On a broken piece of glass
In a purple garden knew my ways
Could land me in eternal days
This life I knew would come to pass
So I sing it out...I shout it out

Chorus
Bye Bye, Mr. Nemesis
I know that we've been down this road before
Bye Bye, Mr. Nemesis
I bet this time you thought you won the war

Round and round in a spin out ride
I watch the world roll by
An old familiar song plays in the air
Amazing Grace I don't know why
I bet the farm on a horsey ride
The bottoms dropping out too late to care
I sing it out...I shout it out

Chorus
Bye Bye, Mr. Nemesis
I know that we've been down this road before
Bye Bye, Mr. Nemesis
I bet this time you thought you won the war

Took a ride down memory lane
In a 4 wheel cart red lights no pain
Looking back on times long gone away
On the outside looking inside
I saw my face on a strange guy
Looked like He had something real to say
Then I talked to Him and He let me in
On the purpose of my life again
He laid it down right there inside the light
Then He whispered in my ear
A message to assuage my fear
And I knew that for this gift of life I'd fight
So I sing it out, I SHOUT IT OUT!

Chorus
Bye Bye, Mr. Nemesis
I know that we've been down this road before
Bye Bye, Mr. Nemesis
I guess this time I FINALLY WON THE WAR
