only the strong lyrics – flaw

(it’s time…)

step on up!

what makes me think that,
it’ll all work out in the end?
afraid to feel bad,
better off to try and pretend
i’m immortal,
immune to all that is wrong
just keep on wishing,
crossing my fingers so long
is this helping?
i’m growing weaker each day
can’t stop whining,
still afraid of what i might say
or reactions,
that control us one and all

it’s mine,
and it’s pure and,
as decent as i can make myself
inside, we all know,
only the strong survive
why don’t you think about that?
why don’t you think about that?

so now i’m bleeding,
on myself yes once again
seems i trusted another deceitful friend,
my fault, should’ve known the deal
keep your friends close,
but your enemies closer; for real
seems easy, but nothing could be so hard
trying to guess life’s dealing
what’s the next card?
i’m surely folding,
i don’t like this hand at all

it’s mine,
and it’s pure and,
as decent as i can make myself
inside, we all know,
only the strong survive
why don’t you think about that?

keep those eyes wide open, here comes a blind side
keep those eyes wide open, here comes a blind side
keep those eyes wide open, here comes a blind side
keep those eyes wide open, here comes a blind side
keep those eyes wide open, here comes a blind side
keep those eyes wide open, here comes a blind side
keep those eyes wide open, here comes a blind side
keep those eyes wide open, here comes a blind side

maybe things happen for a reason,
and wherein lies the answer
to overcome the grieving,
of life’s unruly lessons
i’m handed in succession,
it builds my pain which makes me strong

it’s mine,
it’s pure and,
as decent as i can make myself
inside, we all know,
only the strong survive

well it’s mine,
and it’s pure and,
as decent as i can make myself
inside, we all know,
only the strong survive

why don’t you think about that?
why don’t you think about that for a minute?
