Stay Fast

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.

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 the
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 the voices chanting,
"S-T- A-Y- F-A- S-T"
