The Deepest Well

This song is by Yellowcard and appears on the album Lift A Sail (2014).

Watch video at YouTube
See the barricades ahead
Roll my sleeves up, lift my head
I hear you wail, what can't be done
You are many, I am one
And what becomes, it's hard to tell
Like looking down the deepest well
But I will take a torch with me
And light the way for you to say

Do you understand what it's for?
This dirt that's on my hands, the blood on yours?

I was clawing up the walls for so long
(You were pulling me down, pulling me!)
I was trying not to fall for so long!
(Now I'm gonna get out, gonna get!)

Compliments, like falling rocks
Are ticking bombs with faulty clocks
And I will not be fooled again
I took my means and found my end
And all the days from then til now
The steps I climbed to show you
How small the world can seem to be
When you forget what you believed

Do you understand what it's for?
This dirt that's on my hands, the blood on yours?

I was clawing up the walls for so long
(You were pulling me down, pulling me!)
I was trying not to fall for so long!
(Now I'm gonna get out, gonna get!)

I was clawing up the walls for so long
(You were pulling me down, pulling me!)
I was trying not to fall for so long!
(Now I'm gonna get out!)
I was clawing up the walls for so long
(Now I'm gonna get out!)
I was trying not to fall for so long!
(Now I'm gonna get out, gonna get!)
