"Sometimes" as written by and Pearl/james Woods....
I know that the sunset empire shudders and shakes
I know there's a floodgate and a raging river
I say the silence of the ribbons of iron and steel
I say hear the punch drunk huddle drive hammer and steel

Sometimes you're beaten to the call
Sometimes you're taken to the wall
But you don't give in

I know that the cannibals wear smart suits and ties
I know they arm wrestle on the altar
I say don't leave your heart in a hard place

Sometimes you're shaken to the core
Sometimes the face is gonna fall
But you don't give in

    Song MeaningThe lyrics, and the tune, make me think of workers and workers rights, how their bosses dress in 'smart suits and ties' but are really just monsters who are happy to drive them into the ground at the first opportunity. The song's saying 'don't give up'.
