Hold On by Adam Labeaux
I can’t choose between you and myself
Cut me loose. Win or lose the ice will melt
Two by two, with plastic brooms we clean the cage
Can we make it through life in this zoo another day?
Wait a minute. We can get right in it. Everything is spinning.
Then we seem to be
Looking down, at the ground, all around, living loud
Feeling we’ve been cheated, history repeated, following the
leader. When it’s time to be there
They’re behind the lines, behind the times, behind the lies, (they’re) on both sides
Truth and treat it. Conceive and seed it. If we’re gonna beat it, then we’re gonna need to see
Spit and sweat. You can bet, it’s not the worst, ain’t seen it yet
I believe that you can be the what you want the world to be
So, hold on now!
What do we do, skeleton crew? We are the last
Wave after wave. Captain crazed, lashed to the mast
No land in sight. [We/You] must fight to stay alive
It’s the last big boon. If you believe it’s true, we can survive
The sun will set. But you can bet we’ll light the stage
And we will dance, like it’s our last chance to [turn/burn] the page
Like lightning glass; it happens fast. [We’ll/You’ll] be reborn
With tender skin, that’s paper thin, but can’t be torn
