Lyrics

I thought there was more life than finishing a dream
I thought gravity helped you to dance
but it just makes you sink
I stand in the way of people who stopped caring
Numb hands and feet and ears long past hearing

They sing now you're defeated baby
Fall on your face in the divine way
Don't worry about anything, no
It's just the world having its little way

Justice ain't going to be yours tonight
You got a pure bright soul but Heaven don't need it
Sit on your hands and talk to the friend you never had
Angels laugh with joy and they make you scream
At the strong open crowd, want the great fight
Push up against you and then sustain the right

Now you're defeated baby
World revolves around you
Now you're defeated baby
I really showed you

Now you're defeated baby
Now that you're too big to hold
Now you're defeated baby
You're worth more to me than gold
