The Battle Has Just Begun

I'm the stupid fool who gets beaten down
And then peels himself off the ground
Battered, broken, bloody, black and blue
I still rise to face you
Some say that I won't ever learn
Because I refuse to turn
From a war that 'can't be won'

The Battle has just begun

I've been losing for so long now
I forget how it feels to win
No sense left in wondering how
I'll ever begin
I just keep chargin' that brick wall
Until the day it will surely fall
Or until my days are done

The Battle has just begun

Now years have passed and I still remain
Drawn like a moth to the flame
Stubbornly my whole existence
Has been one of resistance
Now my bones ache and fingers bleed
Still I haven't satisfied the need
For my thoughts and deeds to be one

The Battle has just begun
