• The Camel (face to face with the straw)

I've been thirsty for so long
and I've been walking for years and years...

when they wouldn't help you,
and I became the mule...

I've been doubted for so long
and I've been working for years through tears...

when they wouldn't know you
and I lived to own you

Face to Face with the Enemy
testing Faith just to get to me
haste not waste is the way to be
Thirsty will be the Death of Me.

I've been taken by storm
lightning struck me down

how it struck me down...

why can't we sweat it all off?
we swallow the sand then we cough
with the thirst slowly gripping a grip
oh, when will we learn?

Face to Face with the Enemy
testing Faith just to get to me
haste not waste is the way to be
Thirsty will be the Death of Me.

why can't we walk on the sand?
with the dreams that we always had planned
with the thirst never ruling our lips
oh, they will all learn to give in...
