This is what I think I heard when I listened to the song. Some sentences don't make any sence to me, but this is what the song sounds like

Thin Lizzy

The hero and the madman

(Lynott)

From the album Vagabonds of the western world, 1973, (Decca SKL 5170)


The hero
rode a white horse
across the desert
to where his woman was

He'd been riding
for four days
when he saw the tower
where she was locked

In the moonlight
he led his old steel
near the drawbridge
that he crossed

And by the way of a
rope ladder
he tippy-toed
to where his woman was

If I recall
you're the actor
who followed the stars
searching for the lost city of Mars

Hoping time
could heal the scars
knowing faith
have no bars

And if all that knew ya
always said you'd go far
then you're the one
I think you are

Oh are you the hero
Oh are you the madman
Oh are you the hero
Oh are you the madman

The madman
climbed the steeple spire
go higher, go higher
said the crowd from down below

But the world's on fire
said the madman from the steeple spire
you're a liar, you're a liar
said the crowd down below

So the madman
climbed the steeple spire
and let a crystal ball tear fall
on the crowd down below

If I recall
you're the actor who tup to the stage
set the world to blame
with your anger and your rage

and with every new lead
you turn to roll in a new page
cleverly concealing
your real age

All that knew ya
where always quite amazed
that you're the one
that can take this braze

Oh are you the hero
Oh are you the madman
Oh are you the hero
Oh are you the madman

You're the only one that can say
cried the wizard
our all is love
or all is lost
