Come Out Swinging

Album: Conspiracy Of One (2000)

  • You brace and hold it all inside
    It's more than you can stand
    No one around you even tries
    Tries to understand

    Don't turn away [Repeat: x 2]

    Come out swinging
    Come out alone

    They're in your way [Repeat: x 2]

    But as long as your swinging
    Strong then you'll get by

    Your pacing's wearing out a line
    Right beside your bed
    The scene replays a million times
    Stuck inside your head

    And though you stand in place
    Your mind escapes
    Read between the lies
    Smile's on your face
    You fake like your O.K.

    Don't turn away [Repeat: x 2]

    Come out swinging
    Out on your own

    They're in your way [Repeat: x 2]

    You may be stinging
    But you'll get by

    Don't turn away [Repeat: x 2]

    Come out swinging
    Never alone again

    The pain inside...can guide your way

    Midnight... no sleep
    Your...inside... you scream to
    No one...hears you... fall
    Daylight...prove me...today, day
    One more try

    Don't turn away [Repeat: x 2]

    Come out swinging
    Come out alone

    They're in your way [Repeat: x 2]

    You may be stinging
    But you'll get by

    Don't turn away [Repeat: x 2]

    Come out swinging
    Never alone again
    Pain inside
    Leads you, leads you through so you'll get by! Writer/s: BRYAN HOLLAND
