NEW SONG 2015!!

lyrics

If it's a story worth telling then just be honest, because nothing else matters when in the end you've got nobody but yourself.
Playing it safe is nothing to try for, living with having nothing you'll die for.
When the sting of youth meets the ache of age and it's everything just to keep a grip on all of it.
Staying sharp angle blade to the grinder, spitting sparks as a constant reminder.

Sweat dries, bones heal, blood stains, and I can't think of a worse fate than falling into line.
And I know that when you were kicking against the tide, this is the sound that kept you alive.
It said hold on.
And on and on and on.

The way I figure it, nobody wants to be forgotten rotting away. Legacy is just the proof that you lived it. Speak the creed, keep your speed on your sleeve or on the wrists of the first true believer.
If the man I am met the kid that I was I'd say "don't sweat it man, let it come when it comes. It's the heart that counts" or what's left of it anyway.

Sweat dries, bones heal, blood stains, and I can't think of a worse fate than falling into line.
They'll say what they want when you're not around but then you bite your tongue when they tell you to slow down; get gone.

But S-T-A-Y-F-A-S-T is all that there's ever been for me, and all there ever will be.
For second best and good enough an iron heart has rusted shut again.
We're all just fighting our own war, so let me fight mine and you fight yours. The end.
They'll tell you to give it up and you've damned your luck and you've come unstuck, just tell them all to get far gone.

We're all just fighting our own war. Let me fight mine, you fight yours.
Sweat dries, bones heal, blood stains, and I can't think of a worse fate than falling into line.
I know that when you're kicking against the tide, this is the sound that keeps you alive, it keeps you holding on.
And on and on and on.
