  • No time to hide
    I'm alive on the inside
    Breaking up my mind on the front lines
    When I survive, when I survive another day
    This great divide
    Side by side on the inside
    Breaking up our minds on the front lines
    Never again, never again will I be denied
    Here I come

    'Cause here I come

    I've waited all my life to get out of the trenches
    I'm ready to fight for what I believe you can steal from me
    I won't take this
    Gonna fill these trenches and stand up

    Wake up, I won't give up
    'Cause here I come, here I come

    Back and forth, stuck in a hole, damage control
    Digging for rhymes on a secondhand cell phone
    When I survive, when I survive another year
    Still month to month
    Paying my dues on the inside
    Breaking up my mind on the outside
    Never again, never again will I be denied
    Here I come

    'Cause here I come

    I've waited all my life to get out of the trenches
    I'm ready to fight for what I believe you can steal from me
    I won't take this
    Gonna fill these trenches and stand up

    Wake up, I won't give up
    'Cause here I come, here I come

    I've waited all my life to get out of the trenches
    I'm ready to fight for what I believe you can steal from me
    I won't take this
    Gonna fill these trenches and stand up

    Wake up, I won't give up
    'Cause here I come, here I come

    Stand up
    Wake up
    I won't give up
    'Cause here I come, here I come Writer/s: Dave Bassett, Leigh Kakaty
