Lived the lies, played the games
Knew the whole generation’s names
Seen us live and seen us die
Tales that passed he won’t deny
Questions that we wonder now
He will live to find out how
Fought the wars, reigned as king
This man has done everything

The old soul
His future is becoming someone else
The answers buried deep within himself

Going by a different name
Classic conscience still remains
Here in both present and past
1800 years of fact
Living large and living small
Taking time’s eternal call
Watching over you and me
This man has done everything

He’s watched this city turn to hell
I think he’s given up on us
Two men: incapable of trust

He will be the doctor and the slave
Pushed into a world he cannot save

Too much to know and too little to say
Old Soul is here to stay
