Victim Of The Plan

Intro

We found her dyin' by the roadside
His name, the last thing that she said
Since they couldn't hurt him
They'd kill all he loved instead

Verse 1

It started out as something easy, eliminate problems for pay
But, then they found him inconvienent, they found his talents in the way
We knew that when he heard the rumours there'd be hell to pay
They'd find no place could hide them, he'd bring down judgement day

Chorus

Every night he prays for sleep and tries to wash the blood away
He begins to wonder if he'll see another day
He was their own creation, but, they left him as a man who did not care
He did all that they asked him, did all that one man can
But, in the end he was the hunted one, he was the VICTIM OF THE PLAN

Verse 2

He risked it all for love and honor, a job he knew had to be done
But, then it grew into a nightmare, he'd spend his life out on the run
Their plan turned into something evil, just who lives or dies he'll choose
There is , to them, no greater danger, he's got nothing left to lose

Chorus

Every night he prays for sleep and tries to wash the blood away
He begins to wonder if he'll see another day
He was their own creation, but, they left him as a man who did care
He did all that they asked him, did all that one man can
But, in the end he was the hunted one, he was the VICTIM OF THE PLAN

Bridge

His throats as dry as the desert, his eyes can hardly see
But, he remembers the time when it was her and him and me
But, she's been gone for years now and I can't stand the pain
Now, the only thing that drives him, only thing that keeps him alive
Is the memory of the life they shared and how her loved helped him survive
(INST)

Intro

We found her dyin' by the roadside
His name, the last thing that she said
Since they couldn't hurt him, they killed
All he loved instead

Chorus 2

Every night he prays for sleep and tries to wash the blood away
He begins to wonder if he'll ever see another lost and lonely day
He was their best creation, but, they left as a man who could not care
He did all that they asked him, did all that one man can
But, in the end HE was the haunted one, he was the VICTIM OF THE PLAN

Outro

Oh, oh, the VICTIM OF THE PLAN
Gonna be hell to pay, bring down judgement day
Oh, oh, VICTIM OF THE PLAN.........
Oh, yeah.........
