Keep your head and hold the demons at the bay
Walk the line, It’s only ghosts of yesterday and you’ve got
All the things you need and have been waiting for so long

And what if you’ve been down and tripped along the way
What’s in the past it doesn’t matter anyway, you’ve got to
Build yourself anew and set out of the door once more

All this time I’ve tried to hide
In the dark where I’ve been waiting
Like a neverending night
In a pit where I have fallen
I keep staring at the sky
I’m so far and stars so blinding
Can I crawl into the light
While there’s still time?

Swim in the ocean ‘til you lose sight of the shore
Halfway the road you’ll see the things worth fighting for, I wonder
If it ain’t too late to leave it all behind, I’ve tried

Tired of running just to keep me on the wheel
It’s all pretending, rules are for bending, yet we
Chase the carrots like the pack mules that we are, what for?

All the time spent waiting absolutely hollow (Why can’t I)
Can’t you see the cup’s half full and more will follow?
