The Battleground

It's about being given the chance to prove your worth in life, and knowing that no matter what happens, you can only emerge a better person

Another day and more blood shed
More tears cried and the bitter climb
Counting down, till doomsday comes
The day we leave our ghosts behind

Back and forth in a bloody game
Friends begin to test and no-one knows
How I came through with my head held high
The fire to fight still alive

Somehow I know, I will be the better man
Survive the tests of fire, I will proudly stand

The first jab the shock has come
I will not relent, I will not fall
The bell has sounded, the battle’s begun
Welcome to the cage
Hell for leather ready for rage

One shot and it’s over now
Step through despair and the glory is yours
Strike me again, knock me down
I’ll rise again, a strike with greater force

The days have ebbed away and the day has come
Somewhere in sight, the end of a bitter climb
The battles fought, I’ve already won
This is the night all ghosts come to die

Somehow I know, I will be the better man
Survive the tests of fire, I will proudly stand

The first jab the shock has come
I will not relent, I will not fall
The bell has sounded, the battle’s begun
Welcome to the cage
Hell for leather ready for rage

No more regret, no more mistakes
The first shock and for once in my life
I can truly say I feel alive
No more regret, no more mistakes
Illusions stripped away before my eyes
I will never again feel so alive

The first jab the shock has come
I will not relent, I will not fall
The bell has sounded, the battle’s begun
Welcome to the cage
Hell for leather ready for rage

The End
