What Holds Us Down


we are only brave enough to fight the battles already won for us

and spend more time with our hair than we do our minds

while the girls and the young and the lost

are kicked off to the side

our armies in fractions because our kings are so foolish

we will never know true victory and are happy just to survive

to live to dance another day

still clinging to those golden ?olden days

while our mouths sweep the mess to the back of our minds

nothing ever changing as we all grow older

nothing ever changing as our hearts grow colder

that抯 what holds us down

we flap our wings but we never leave the ground
