lyrics

it's a war - it's a war
and you can't be waiting, for a right side to win
yeah fatalism, is the mark of a modern religion
and overshadows the want to be rather than how we've been

and i'm sure, i'm sure...
you still care, and your heart isn't lying in greed
before it was born, we had everything that we need
and with no reasons there's no reason to concede

and you can't hold me down
no you can't hold me down
it goes around and around
not waiting to be found

for what it's worth, for what it's worth
there have been moments of unparalleled fear
there was a day when I was stripped of everything dear
and all I contain is nothing I can hold near

and you can't hold me down
no you can't hold me down
it goes around and around
not waiting to be found

and what's it for, what is it for?
I'll tell you it's not day trading or when the politiicans lie
it's not for me to say, the gods that will catch your eye
and whatever role you play, will not require a disguise

and you can't hold me down
no you can't hold me down
it goes around and around
not waiting to be found

and what's more, what is more
nobody could say there was a chance that you win
it's not how you end but how you begin
it's not how you end but how you begin

and you can't hold me down
no you can't hold me down
it goes around and around
not waiting to be found
