lyrics

Hopeless minds and troubled souls
Line up behind the gates
Some join their hands a begging
Some have their cups and plates
I’m right there in the middle
The crowd on either side
It’s pushing up behind me
Stepping on its pride

My eyes and ears are covered
As I scramble to my feet
And not a word is spoken
As I beat a slow retreat
The crowd, it starts a thinning
And I find myself alone
With nothing left to hold me,
Rolling freely like a stone

Someday you’ll come back cryin’
But I don’t know that’s when
So I will keep on fighting,
Keep on fighting ‘till the end

And though the tide’s a rising
I will not be consumed
There is no cause for panic
As I sit here in my room.
You left me in the gutter
You left me in haste
You left with all that you could take
But you left my mind in place

Someday you’ll come back cryin’
But I don’t know that’s when
So I will keep fighting,
Keep on fighting ‘till the end

Oh... you’re driven by your fears
Oh... just open up your ears
Oh... what have you become?

You won’t see me crawling,
Or walking on my knees
I’ll fight this thing without you,
Like it’s my own disease

Passive eyes and sterile lies
Can’t keep me from my fate
If it’s with or without you
I still won’t negotiate
We did alright together,
But I’m doing fine alone
And I’ll leave the door half-open
For the day that you come home

Someday you’ll come back cryin’
But I don’t know that’s when
So I will keep fighting,
Keep on fighting ‘till the end
