I woke up from another nightmare
With nobody there to calm my nerve
Just a vision of two summers playing stateside
It seems like such another world

They tell you sit down and hush, hush
This is how the world works
They tell you sit down and hush, hush,
You'll die like everybody else

When you're down, keep swinging
Because life a mystery
You never know when you're gonna hit
When you're down, keep swinging
Because life is a mystery
But you've got to face your own

So wake me up and bring me daylight
Bring me back to where I used to live
Growing up with everybody on my shoulders
It's so much farther to fall now that I'm older
They told me sit down and hush, hush
This is how the world works
They tell you sit down and hush, hush
You'll die like everybody else

When you're down keep swinging
Because life is a mystery
You never know when you're gonna hit
When you're down, keep swinging
Because life is a mystery
But you've got to face it on your own

I need to convince myself that I'm gonna die like everybody else
