lyrics

Hold onto the things you believe in as tight as you can
It’s just a matter of time until somebody lies and you start doubting yourself again
There’s a factory processing bullshit inside of your brain
A sweatshop in mind where a woman and child
Are worked to the bone every hour to survive

We all stand together with our swords in the sky
It’s always worth fighting with friends at our side
And the fact of the matter is that I cannot do this without you
It’s starting to seem like I’m destined to fail
But I can’t afford to tell myself that every day
As I said, I can’t do this without you

I don’t understand how you are not world famous yet
The way you break hearts is a well refined art
And it’s one that I’d rather forget
I’m starting to feel like I’m destined to spend life along
But good friendships have died to keep others alive
And those are the friends that I hold at my side

We all stand together with our swords in the sky
It’s always worth fighting with friends at our side
And the fact of the matter is that I cannot do this without you
It’s starting to seem like I’m destined to fail
But I can’t afford to tell myself that every day
As I said, I can’t do this without you

Surely the best way to let loved ones go is to just suck it up and say I’m letting you go
There are reasons for doing this that only I know and I don’t want to explain them because you don’t wanna know
You take a step backwards
Give loved ones time
Make sure you stay out of sight
Out of mind

We all stand together with our swords in the sky
It’s always worth fighting with friends at our side
And the fact of the matter is that I cannot do this without you
It’s starting to seem like I’m destined to fail
But I can’t afford to tell myself that every day
As I said, I can’t do this without you

We all stand together with our swords in the sky
It’s always worth fighting with friends at our side
We all stand together with our swords in the sky
It’s always worth fighting with friends at our side
We all stand together with our swords in the sky
It’s always worth fighting with friends at our side
