Re: Madagascar

(Rose, Pitman)

Lyrics

I won't be told anymore
That I've been brought down in this storm
And left so far out from the shore
That I can't find my way back, my way anymore
Oh no I won't be told anymore
That I've been brought down in this storm
And left so far out from the shore
That I can't find my way back, my way anymore
Oh I, I

Forgive them that tear down my soul
And bless them that they might grow old
And free them so that they may know
That it's never too late
For the many times what seemed like a memory
I've searched and found the ways
You used to lure me in
Oh, I found the ways
Oh, Why it had to be
Mired in denial, and so afraid
If we ever find its true
That we had the strength to choose
Oh, The freed of all the chains
We have together

That we have the strength to choose
And left so far out from the shore
Oh, freed of all the chains
That I can't find my way back, my way anymore
We held together

A gianormously underrated tune, that has never gotten the respect it deserves. An amazing song, that is in my GN'R Top-10.


It just speaks to me. There's certain songs that strike a chord with you, like a soundtrack to your life. Madagascar is that song for me. Just like Welcome To The Jungle & Estranged was before it.

Seconded.

The "Chiba" show in 2007 has the best post Buckethead performance of the song, by the way.
