  • Kill me if you dare, hold my head up everywhere
    Keep myself right on this train
    I'm the underdog, live my life on a lullaby
    Keep myself riding on this train
    Keep myself riding on this train

    Love in Technicolor sprayed out on walls
    I've been pounding at the pavement 'til there's nothing at all
    I got my cloak and dagger in a bar room brawl
    See the local loves a fighter, loves a winner to fall

    Feels like I'm lost in a moment
    I'm always losing to win
    Can't get away from the moment
    Seems like it's time to begin

    Kill me if you dare, hold my head up everywhere
    Keep myself right on this train
    I'm the underdog, live my life on a lullaby
    Keep myself riding on this train
    Keep myself riding on this train

    It don't matter, I won't do what you say
    You've got the money and the power, I won't go your way
    I can't take from the people, they don't matter at all
    I'll be waiting in the shadows 'til the day that you fall

    Feels like I'm lost in a moment
    I'm always losing to win
    Can't get away from the moment
    Seems like it's time to begin

    Kill me if you dare, hold my head up everywhere
    Keep myself right on this train
    I'm the underdog, live my life on a lullaby
    Keep myself riding on this train

    Tell me if you're down, throw your weapons to the ground
    Keep myself right on this train
    Hey bird you're on the wire, sold yourself for another one
    Keep myself riding on this train
    Keep myself riding on this train Writer/s: Sergio Pizzorno
