lyrics

One blurry moment
One chance to get it right
Concentration, impossible to achieve
A hand reaches out and grabs me

Barely afloat and I’m caught in the rope that was thrown out half-assed on a prayer
Let me sink down
Way down under

Don’t know if I’ll ever make it over there
Don’t wanna know if I’ll be here tomorrow

Stitches and dives
You know you’re alive when pain is all you feel
When I’ve been scrapped, I get my boots strapped on for the road ahead goes on for now
No matter what it is now, everything is going to be alright

From angst to apathy
Self-loathing homicidal rage
I’ve gripped so tight my hands are bleeding

Lobotomy would make me feel alright

Last place in competition
I’ve got no ambition to make it in your world
Your design is fundamentally screwed
A month on the streets would do you good

Stitches and dives
You know you’re alive when pain is all you feel
When I’ve been scrapped, I get my boots strapped on for the road ahead goes on for now
No matter what it is now, everything is going to be alright
Though I may never understand
Let me go
Let me down
Let me fall to the ground

I will rise
I will rise
No comprehension for failure, no compromise
As sure as the sun in the sky
