  • Every morning, every day,
    I am hopin' for a chance to get away
    In the evening, every night,
    I am dreamin' of a chance to make it right
    Every chance that I get I am placin' a bet on the sun in the sky

    And if you take this away from me
    I'll never forgive you can't you see
    Our life will be broken
    Our hate will be unspoken

    I can feel those metal chains
    And they're holding back the hope that keeps me sane
    I can fight back, yes I can
    'Cause I'm strong enough to show you I'm a man
    And I hate what you do, when your poison seeps through
    And you're laughin' at me


    Every chance that I get I am placin' a bet
    On the sun in the sky as it sets out of sight
    And I hate what you do when your poison seeps through
    And you're laughing at me
