Patent Pending – There Was A Time lyrics

There was a time (a time)
I lost my mind in the radio
There was a place (and a face)
I just can't let it go

And they talk
As if there's ever been a choice
As I bleed (bleed)
My life out through this voice

And no matter where my body finally falls
I'll go out swinging (swinging)
With my back against the wall

They won't take me alive (alive)
They can try (they can try)
I'll die
Before they can take me alive (I'll die)
They won't take me alive
