  • Don't look ahead, there's stormy weather
    Another roadblock in our way
    But if we go, we go together
    Our hands are tied here if we stay

    Oh, we set our dreams to carry us
    In the middle where we were one
    Now we push right past to find out
    Or either win what they have lost

    Oh ah, oh ah
    We know now we won't go
    Oh ah, oh ah
    Our lives worth fighting for
    Oh ah, oh ah
    We know now we won't go
    Oh ah, oh ah
    Our lives worth fighting for

    So let them say we won't do better
    Lay out the rules that we can't break
    They wanna sit and watch you wiggler
    Their legacy's too hard to take

    Oh, we set our dreams to carry us
    In the middle where we were one
    Now we push right past to find out
    Or either win what they have lost

    Oh ah, oh ah
    We know now we won't go
    Oh ah, oh ah
    Our lives worth fighting for
    Oh ah, oh ah
    We know now we won't go
    Oh ah, oh ah
    Our lives worth fighting for

    In their heads and in their beds
    In their eyes it shows
    When the freedom breaks
    And you ask and they don't know
    Oh tell me then
    I turn my back while the odds all stand beneath me
    And they all said I was mislead
    But the odds now standing with me

    Oh ah, oh ah
    We know now we won't go
    Oh ah, oh ah, our lives worth fighting for
    Oh, we set our dreams to carry us
    In the middle where we were one
    Now we push right past to find out
    Or either win what they have lost

    Oh ah, oh ah
    We know now we won't go
    Oh ah, oh ah
    Our lives worth fighting for
    Oh ah, oh ah
    We know now we won't go
    Oh ah, oh ah
    Our lives worth fighting for
