lyrics

Hold it back
hold it back again
hold it back to hold out in suspense
hold it to you only hold against.
When you’re fixed on the prize just beyond sight
consumed with the hunger of lions
fixed on the piece always out of your reach
compelled by the weight of the gun
in a race to the top you might never reach
to be like the ones who you wanna be
to keep you staying
with the few left in the fight to be the last still standing.

Break it in
break it in again
break it up and down and break through
break it till it bleeds all black and blue.
When you’re fixed on the ground in a void with no bounds
and a pride that runs thicker than deep
fixed on the fear that grows darker each year
that you know you’re not where you belong
in a race to the top you might never reach
to be like the ones who you’ll never be
to keep you staying
with the few left in the fight to be the last still standing.

And when they all fall down
(and without a name, underneath the waves and the overhang,
they will drown)
and when they all fall down
(after all the hype, like a pack of flies drawn to the light, one at a time,
they fall out)
new ones rise up
all over again
(like the ones before)
to keep you under
(hanging by a thread just to keep your head clear from all the rest)
underneath it all
(falling out)
just below the bar
(held back by the wayside)
to keep you staying
with the few left in the fight to be the last still standing.
With the few left in the fight
with the few left in the fight
with the few left in the fight
with the few left in the fight to be the
last still standing.
