You gotta stand with empty hands
It's funny how I'm turning responsibly numb
We let the money burn and it spoiled all the fun
If it's gone, it's a big burden lifted
I hope somebody learned a lesson well
If it's gone, then we don't really need it
It's a warning sign
I can tell
I can tell
I can tell

No I don't have to let it bother me
Bother me now
No I don't have to let it carry me, carry me down
No I don't have to let it cover me
Let it smother me
No I don't have to do that now
No I don't

You gambled all your chances like you just wished them away
Now was it really worth it to just be king for a day
If it's gone, then it will not desert you
Some times the better things in life are free
If it's gone, then thank God it can't hurt you
It's just the way it is
Got too big, got too big, got too big


You've gotta stand with empty hands
There's a voice that keeps saying to let it go every time you bleed
It's about faith
Every time you need


No I don't
No I don't have to do that now
It's about faith
No I don't have to do that
I don't have to
You don't have to
We don't have to let it get to us anymore
You gotta stand with empty hands
