The Time Has Come

The time has come to throw my ghost away
The ghost that's lived in me since childhood day
It's lived and grown in me all down the years
I'll cast it out and for it shed no tears.

The time has come to reach into my soul
And rid myself of ever darkening mole
That go by name of negativity
Since childhood days it's lived and grown in me.

The time has come to face what I can't see
And rid my soul of hidden enemy
For years and years it's had the upper hand
And the time has come for me to take command.

The time has come for me to overthrow
My enemy my self destructive foe
All down the years the master of my soul
But the time has come for me to take control.

Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
