  Everyone crying and burning and frying in my dream
  Everyone needs just a little bit more to believe
  Intention, no bleeding, thinking what I have to do
  Intention, more bleeding, I'm coming home for you

Play Riff C 4 times

 (Pre-Chorus)
  Life was but a simple dream of doing what was right
  Broken into pieces as day turned into night
  Life was but a simple dream, now all I see is red
  Broken into fragments by the Thunderhead

Play Riff D

 (Chorus)
  Send the word ahead, don't wanna be alone
  Time to wake the dead, I'm coming home
  Send the word ahead, now I'm cast in stone
  Fear the Thunderhead, I'm coming home (Thunderhead)
  I'm coming home (Thunderhead)
  I'm coming home (Thunderhead)
  I'm coming...
