He tip toes from rip to break
And skips the cracks where he gets sick
Counting sheep, losing sleep
Now his lids are heavy set
Run for it, they're on the prowl
These demons never make a sound
Cries ignored
Well, this cardboard box will keep him dry for now

Why do I give in when I know it's not the only answer?
What a way to save my skin, my angst is growing like a cancer
And know the things we'll say when they're standing in our way
Maybe soon this all will be a distant memory

There might as well be blood stains on this carpet floor
He's laying face down wondering what fighting back is for
Don't even give them a chance to knock you down
Don't even give them a chance to knock you down
And I'll be singin' when I turn around, "La la la la la la, la la la la la"

Why do I give in when I know it's not the only answer?
What a way to save my skin, my angst is growing like a cancer
And know the things we'll say when they're standing in our way
Maybe soon this all will be a distant memory

Wars waged on life
We wave it in defeat
Take down the lights
Soldier, on your feet
I march head strong to shout aloud
That now, now, now I'm free

Why do I give in when I know it's not the only answer?
What a way to save my skin, my angst is growing like a cancer
And know the things we'll say when they're standing in our way
Maybe soon this all will be a distant memory
La la la la la la, la la la la la la la
Don't even give them a chance to knock you down
Don't even give them a chance to knock you down
And I'll be singin' when I turn around, "La la la la la la, la la la la la la la"
