Fight Test
(The test begins...now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now)

I thought I was smart, I thought I was right
I thought it better not to fight, I thought there was a virtue in always being cool
So it came time to fight
I thought, "I'll just step aside and that the time would prove you wrong"
And that you would
Be the fool, I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin, it's all a mystery

Oh, to fight is to defend
If it's not now then tell me when would be the time that you would stand up and be a man
For to lose I could accept
But to surrender I just wept and regretted this moment (I don't know)
Oh that I, was the fool

I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin, it's all a mystery
And I don't know how a man decides what's right for his own life, it's all a mystery

'Cause I'm a man, not a boy
And there are things you can't avoid, you have to face them when you're not prepared to face them
If I could, I would
But you're with him, now I'd do no good I should've fought him but instead I let him (I let him take you)

I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin, it's all a mystery
And I don't know how a man decides what's right for his own life, it's all a mystery
I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin, it's all a mystery
And I don't know how a man decides what's right for his own life, it's all a mystery

I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin, it's all a mystery
(If it's not now then tell me when would be the time that you would stand up and be a man)
And I don't know how a man decides what's right for his own life, it's all a mystery
(And there are things you can't avoid, you have to face them when you're not prepared to face them)
I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin, it's all a mystery
(But you're with him, now I'd do no good I should've fought him but instead I let him I let him take you)

(The test is over...now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now...)
