Staying Up in a Down World

from by Know Your Enemy



So much hate to choose from
Take your pick
It's everywhere you turn
The flame that once was inside of us
Still smoldering
But no longer burns
Try and hang on
to a fading memory
We didn't even know
These were the times we'd miss the most
There's gotta be a reason for all this struggle
Staying up in a down world
Staying up in a down world
Never will it get the best of me
Never concede to hopelessness
You can't see out of misery
When it surrounds you
Rise up high enough
to see a better way
Think of who you hoped to someday be
Before you were defeated
I don't know about you
But my time is precious
We're all counting down
Those were the days
