Between heaven and hell the devil in me,
Burned another bridge on the family tree,
You take the bottle from my hand and the whiskey off my breath,
Tell me is there really anything left,
There's a limit to livin' on Gods green earth,
I'm still tryin' to figure what that's worth,
Not makin' any choices I'm just makin' mistakes,
Livin' in a world where the sinners are saints,

Chorus:
How can I win when the battle keeps changing,
Should I just lay down my gun,
Surrender to the demons I'm facing,
Do I fight or do I run,
Is this the moment I finally take a stand,
When this war on a desperate man.

Been praying to God to let me hear his voice,
Could take me now if that's his choice,
Who's it gonna be who makes me realize,
There are days I don't even wanna open my eyes.

(Revert to Chorus x2)

On a desperate man...
