Lyrics

I am on fire, an inferno down below
Disconnecting all I know, I didn’t know
How could I know that there was a demon under my tires?
Improvised and finely split
Synchronized through flying spit
Out in the dark, I was the mark
This day feels tragic, I need some magic
Ancient remedy book, it’s all I took
From the libraries of yesterday

I am half my height with desperation in my sight
Drudging up my every might, I didn’t see
How could it be that there is this flip side, to the fight
When all the comrades melt away
With isolation every day
Too much to drink, too much to think

The world feels colder, I feel much older
Should I give up trying?
Heart of the lion, please help and get me through this day

And there she was, she looked so fresh
So cool but yet so hot
She gave me the courage to drink from this bitter cup
Should happiness pursuit even be sought?
I will see it soon, I will come back soon
I will come back around
Can’t keep me down, I will stand up again

And I will run, yes I will run
I will get back on my feet
And I will run, yes I will run
I will get back on my feet
