So now that everybody's gone
You see what change has come
In every song you've ever sung
You find the words were wrong

But now the time is gonna come
And there's no feeling lost
For everyone you could've loved
And made me not to love

And all the time
I thought your words were mine
You held me down
As sure as the sun
You held me down
As sure as the sun

Now I could see into your eyes
But there's no compromise
For anyone you coulda saved
But never recognized
And now your world is gonna fall
But I wont help at all
For everyone who sees the place
Who knows they can't belong

And all the time
I thought your words were mine
You held me down
As sure as the sun
You held me down
As sure as the sun

You've taken away
Much more than you gave
What keeps me down
I'm lost in a rage
No one can explain
What keeps me down
What keeps you down

So now that everybody's gone
You see no change has come
In every song you've ever sung
You find the words were wrong

And every paper that you read
You feel your spirit grieve
For everyone who's gonna fall
The distance another leaves

And all the time
I thought your words were mine
You held me down
As sure as the sun
You held me down
As sure as the sun

You've taken away
Much more than you gave
What keeps me down
I'm lost in a rage
No one can explain
What keeps me down
What keeps you down
