hope i’m wrong lyrics – cool for august

i’ve been away 10, 000 times and still i look in the mirror
what do i see?
an owl tryin’ to fly in the light of day
unaware of what’s in my way
i can only find my place and i hope i’m wrong
i hope i’m wrong

by step by step…

ooh here they come
destroying my youth
and the other side’s the same
when the rain pours
they’ll cut us a loop and another nail

i’ve been asleep for most of my life and still it looks familiar
the people i meet are callous,
taking life in another way,
contrived in the words they say,
keeping time with the wolves at prey and i hope i’m wrong
i hope i’m wrong

ooh here they come
destroying my youth
and the other side’s the same
when the rain pours
they’ll cut us a loop and another nail

they will pay for
all the times we’ve come through
in the eyes of hate

when will i make it?
and is the world worth taking?
when will i make it?

ooh here they come
destroying my youth
and the other side’s the same
when the rain pours
they’ll cut us a loop and another nail
