The Good Fight

lyrics

I know I'm where I oughta be
but that don't make it easier
I gotta keep pushin' on
even if I do it blindly

The cynics,
they may laugh at me
but I try my best to ignore 'em
'cause I've been among the bitter crowd
and where did it get me

Lately
I've been feeling weak
let this disease grab a hold of me
so tell me,
does it ever get better than this
'cause I don't wanna be

Just another lost cause
stuck in a hard time
doing the same old dance
singing the same old song

I don't wanna be
a revolving door case
don't wanna fall
don't wanna cave
don't wanna waste and throw it away
I have to fight the good fight

We can't be forced against our will
can't be fed if we don't wanna be full
we swear we could never be swayed
swore we'd never change our ways

We thought we were in control
but it's time for letting go

Lately
I've been feeling weak
let this disease grab a hold of me
so tell me,
does it ever get better than this
'cause I don't wanna be

Just another lost cause
stuck in a hard time
doing the same old dance
singing the same old song

I don't wanna be
a revolving door case
don't wanna fall
don't wanna cave
don't wanna waste and throw it away
I have to fight the good fight

Oh, I know it's hard sometimes
when waking up feels just like a waste of time
and oh, I know it's hard to breathe
I"m cryin' out
I'm cryin
I don't wanna be

Just another lost cause
stuck in a hard time
doing the same old dance
singing the same old song

I don't wanna be
a revolving door case
don't wanna fall
don't wanna cave
don't wanna waste and throw it away
I have to fight the good fight
I have to fight the good fight (X4)
