lyrics

Cat eyes

in third world demise

and bloodstains on the lines

of the child in my father’s eyes

stories of the battles

fought for dignity’s sake

For pride and for the name

and from the mistake


of standing up

against the beast

whose only light burns

when we bleed


We’re all left alone

and those thoughts they can think

and they silently spell out

what that makes me weak

but I am my own

my own fate I seek

it’s slowly burning out

the future’s growing bleak

I am breaking down

from fighting against the beast

who lives in the darkest place

breaks me till I bleed


I can’t blink

If my head won’t think

Hide my hand

and drown in drink

Because who I was

Is on the brink

When dignity sinks
I start to think


Of standing up

against the beast

whose only light burns

when we bleed
