A pinnacle moment in John's life; led by blind ambition and a sick desire for wealth, John sets off to go after what he desires most.


I've been unwell, since my released cleared
Struggle to find, desirable wage here
(Yes) I am afraid

I've met no remorse, for lonesome days
Hark you my friend, grant me a new age
An easier way

(On) History's page, my name won't be found
Unwise to think, candor brings strong ground
It's all a charade

A straggler at war, for some success
Begging my fate, for a protest
Against this sad state, I so detest
For self-worth I pine, ah but I'm
I'm a man lost

I'd juggle the heads, of the poorest
To gain my entrance, through the corridor
And sit with the rulers, beloved and dominant
So enviable, (ahh) but I'm
I'm a man lost

I've been unwell
