lyrics

Dig down, deep down in the muck and mire
It's there It's yours your utmost desire
Look close, closer yet rub your nose in it
there's lessons to be learned from defeat

So don't run don't hide it's long past those times
What you want only a broken man can find
stand up look straight and then stride by stride
Give in, give up, and swallow down your pride

Break the ties

There's so much more to gain on the losing side
leave the light,
you mistake conceit for self respect and pride

Being right is so common place in a complacent life
to really shine you gotta fail harder, a little harder every time


You gotta learn how to love and embrace it
or else the pain will leave its marks every time x2

Don't run don't hide its long past those times
What you want only a beaten man can find
stand up look straight stride by stride
Give in give up, and swallow down your pride

Break the ties

There's so much more to gain on the losing side
leave the light,
you mistake conceit for self respect and pride

Being right is so common place in a complacent life
To really shine you got to fail harder, a little harder every time
