Every Step That I Take

Album: The Atlas Underground (2018)
  • From the time I was born
    Through all of my days
    Try to catch my breath
    Out of the womb and into the flames
    Searching for the neon path
    I've been waiting my whole life
    In the crossfire, yeah
    I've been hiding my whole life
    In the crossfire, yeah the crossfire

    Every time I move
    Every step that I take
    Everywhere I look
    It's right in front of my face
    One foot in the shadows
    One foot on the brakes
    One foot towards the gallows
    Where it's quiet and safe

    Every step that I take
    Every step that I take
    Every step that I take
    Step that I take
    Every step that I take

    Lost in the motions
    Locked in the safe
    Trying to forget the key
    And I know where I lost it
    But I'll never say
    One day it was taken from me
    I've been waiting my whole life
    In the crossfire, yeah
    I've been hiding my whole life
    In the crossfire, yeah the crossfire

    Every time I move
    Every step that I take
    Everywhere I look
    It's right in front of my face
    One foot in the shadows
    One foot on the brakes
    One foot towards the gallows
    Where it's quiet and safe

    Every step that I take
    Every step that I take
    Every step that I take
    Step that I take
    Every step that I take
    Step that I take
    Every step that I take

    Every step that I take
    Every step that I take
    Every step that I take

    Every time I move
    Every step that I take
    Everywhere I look
    It's right in front of my face
    One foot in the shadows
    One foot on the brakes
    Can't shake this force that
    Keeps calling my name

    Every step that I take
    Every step that I take
    Every step that I take
    Every step that I take Writer/s: Tom Morello, Ethan Snoreck, John Gourley
