It took me everything I had To give all that I could Walk beside me while I sleep Steer me from the slumber wolf Tangled forest of the mind Speaks to me of self-despise Close the window through the pane Hear the siren's serenade
Could have been the comeback kid The southpaws' legend glove to fill No shadow boxer but the one A true contender for the crown Now this punch drunk grinning soul In its' corner begs 'no more'
[Chorus] Hey now, stay proud You were lost on a blue day Hey now, stay proud Hey now, stay proud You were lost on a blue day Hey now, stay proud But we hardly knew ya
The chamber echo never speaks The rushin' tide devours my feet No global warming fills this soul For hell it freezes what it stole From the beggar's empty plate To our world that stuffs its' face
But these tired eyes are crashin' down on me While the paint never dries On these four walls that now suffocate me But tonight, maybe tonight All will be free
Release, unlock this prison door It can't hold me anymore Serpent lied with sting of tale Hand of reason rusts the nail Now this punch drunk grinning soul In its' corner begs 'no more'
