The Shield
Sick Of It All

lowered my shield, lowered - defenses
happier now feeling - all senses
heighten my soul and my - awereness
isnt it great being - defendeless
a long time ago i was - protected
the choise was mine and i - selected
the joy and the pain were - connected
lowered my shield, now im not protected
i never used to let it down
never used to let it down
i never used to let it down
never used to let it
theres something ive got to see
i never used to let it down
never used to let it down
i never used to let it down
never used to let it
ive got to see whats realy inside of me

now i understand that emotion
now i undrstand why thers commotion
all this time without - a notion
all this time without - devotion
why waste time being - suspicious
come taste life its - delicious
expose yourself to the - malicious
expose yourself, theyre - so vicious

all these years / will this shield disappear
and will i stand / a stronger man / no shield in hand
ill have to overcome the pain the best that i can
