Lyrics

there's a knock at your door
you don't even recognize the stranger
it's you from before
trying to warn you all about the dangers
there's a hole in your head
at least that's what everybody's guessing
it's why you're always misread
it's why you sleep but you never feel rested
you never get your rest in
hold onto your heart
hold it high above flood waters
hold onto your heart
never let nobody drag it under
hold onto your heart
even when your body's bitter
hold onto your heart
never let nobody take it over
ever it take it over
ever it take it over from you
there's a call on the phone
you don't even recognize the number
it's an old episode
of trying to put the lightening on the monster
of the life you have led
that is always a mess
are you dreaming of death
are there ghosts in your chest
are you always so restless
yes you are
is that hard
hold onto your heart
hold it high above flood waters
hold onto your heart
never let nobody drag it under
hold onto your heart
even when your body's bitter
hold onto your heart
never let nobody take it over
ever it take it over
ever it take it over from you
is it all a game of bait & switch your brains
& follow your leaders to hell
is it all the same vein of insane
as drinking from a poisoned well
& i need new skin for this old skeleton of mine
'cause this one that i'm in has let me down once again over time
& i need new skin for this old skeleton of mine
'cause this one that i'm in has let me down once again over time
hold onto your heart
hold it high above flood waters
hold onto your heart
never let nobody drag it under
hold onto your heart
even when the whole world's bitter
hold onto your heart
never let nobody take it over
ever it take it over
ever it take it over from you
