​40 Years Down

This song is by Holding On and appears on the album Just Another Day (2001).

The world, it tries to break me down
And I'll survive by standing my fucking ground
Eyes closed, mouth shut is how I'm supposed to be
Or cast out for not accepting what they deem as normalcy
That is not me, that will never be me
Stuck and lifeless with no way out
That is not me
That will never be me
I'm told to stay in line, but that line leads me nowhere
They smash-all hope-by taking advantage of your dreams
What is success is all make believe
40 years later when you're finally set free, your life is hollow and your left wondering "Is that all?" That is not me
That will never be me
Trapped and waiting for death so patiently
That is not me
That will never be me
I could never live a life so empty
The world
It tries
The world tries to break me down and I'll survive
I'll survive by standing my fucking ground and I'll survive
