"They're Winning" as written by and James Hamilton Leithauser Paul C Maroon....
They're winning
I know it's not fair, but what is?
I'm giving up hope.
I've stood in line so many times.
How could I do it all again?

They're starting
To run out of steam,
Fall to their knees.

The headaches and worries
And crying and bills to pay,
How could they keep it up so long?

    General CommentA few corrections: "...the headaches and worries and crying...." I don't know about that "in bills to pay" line. It seems out of place, but it's hard to tell.

    A great song when they play it live.

    General CommentI thought it was ...
    We're starting
    To run out of steam
    Fall to our knees
    With our headaches
    And wounds
    And crying
    And bills to pay
    How can they
    keep it up so long?"

    General CommentFavorite Walkmen song. Reminded me of Velvet Underground immediately.

    Sounds to me like:

    We're starting
    To run out of steam
    Fall to our knees
    The headaches
    And worries
    And crying
    And bills to pay
    How could they
    keep it up so long?"
