Verse
The world I live in is burning to the ground.
Happy people live their happy lives all around.
Untouched by death, untouched by loss,
Untainted because they don't have to bear a cross.
Verse
My heart screams at how unfair life has been.
I'm tempted to soak myself in gasoline,
To end the pain, the struggle, the uncertainty,
And every other demon that daily torments me.
Chorus
But I can't give up on all of it, not now.
I can't give you the satisfaction of knowing you've won.
You might have the upper hand but somehow,
Situations will be a lot different when I am done.
Verse
The world I live in is crumbling to the ground.
I might be tired but I won't put my brick and mortar down.
I'll repair and rebuild every time you break me,
Snatch all that I have, when I'm empty, you'll see
Chorus
That I won't give up on all of it, ever.
I can't give you the satisfaction of knowing you've won.
You might have the upper hand but it won't last forever,
Situations will be a lot different when I am done.
Bridge
A cruel God versus a stubborn human.
You didn't account for my strength when you made your plan.
I might be broken, and I might be alone,
You might think I'll hurt if you keep on throwing stones.
It is at the edge that people lose their minds and take their lives and you watch in glee.
It is at the edge that your smile ignites the lively fire inside of me.
You can never extinguish it, no matter what you do.
And hence victory will never belong to you.
Chorus
No, I won't give up on all of it, not now.
I can't give you the satisfaction of knowing you've won.
You might have the upper hand but somehow,
Situations will be a lot different when I am done.
