WALKING DOWN THE ROAD WITH YOU

I am your constant companion, tempter of the strong
seducing you with hope and telling you there's nothing wrong
I lead you down dark alleys from which there's no return
throw you in the fire and then I watch you burn

you wrestle with your conscience because you think it's real
it's my dreams that lead you on, my schemes that turn the wheel
you cannot change direction, it's bred into your bone
wherever you are going, well you'll never walk alone

'cause I, oh I, oh I, I am the ghost of things to come
and I'm walking down the road with you
walking down the road with you

I am the circus master of every secret fear
those caged-up desires you've hidden down the years
itís me that cracks the whip and it's me that keeps the keys
and when the show begins I'll set the tigers free

do you get a sense of history repeating?
have you made the same mistakes again?
do you see me smiling in the bathroom mirror?
it's a greeting from the beast within

take a look around the world and all your silver screens
new life and new death, let me show you what it means
I see you watch the razor from the corner of your eye
come on my brother, let your best friend see you smile

'cause I, oh I, oh I, I am the ghost of things to come
and I'm walking down the road with you
walking down the road with you
I'm gonna help you push on through
walking down the road with you
even though you might not want me to
walking down the road with you
