fight or flight lyrics – face to face

we’re ready to go
ticking like a bomb that’s about to blow
it’s taking control
pulling at your feet like an undertow
you don’t really know
if you’re all that capable

but you’ve been told

don’t pretend you’re stupid

figure it out
sort it out
go make yourself useful

you’re better than dead
you really made a mess with the words you said
so easily fed
the flames of the fire rise above your head

they want to be led
you’ve joined the ranks instead
there’s a voice in your head

i can’t figure it out
any more than the generation before me
i can’t figure it out
how we got where we are today

i can’t figure it out
any more than the generation before me
i can’t figure it out
we’ve got to fight not to fade away
