It's another November evening
As you remember your way home
You mete out your aggressive tendencys
On what's left of your blackened soul (Your Blackend Soul)
You've come to this conclusion
As you're dragged from another bloody fight
You've reached the edge where you've decided
That you've lived out your whole life

Another busted knuckle, taken down by a kick to the balls
You're wasting time, wasting time as life's shadow grows so tall
It's another busted knuckle, it's a fight you'll never win
And now you bow your head in shame, for a sin no one forgives

[Chorus]
Fight, fight, you'll never win (this is our life)
Tonight I'll start again
Fight, fight, you'll never win (this is our life)
How will I make amends
This is our life, this is our time
This is my life, don't waste my time.

Your wife can't understand you
And you've alienated your oldest friends
Breaking back and fingers to the bone
Burning candles at both ends (at both ends)

Tired of this petty life you lead
A series of dull events
A two-bit, half-assed effigy
Of someone else's dread

Another busted knuckle, taken down by a kick to the balls
You're wasting time, wasting time as life's shadow grows so tall
It's another busted knuckle, it's a fight you'll never win
And now you bow your head in shame, for a sin no one forgives

Fight, fight, you'll never win (this is our life)
Tonight I'll start again (this is our time)
Fight, fight, you'll never win (this is our life)
How will I make amends (this is our time)
This is our life, this is our time
This is my life, don't waste my time.

This is our life, this is our time
This is my life, this is my time
Repeat x2
