I don't need your sympathy but I'll take it anyway, if it kills some time
Reach your open hand to me and I'll sever your arm
I take that back
I just feel so old since the sun came up today
And the winds of change unearthed my apathy
It's all work and no play

Another battle I'm losing, better than crying to be numb, I've heard (x6)
Another battle I'm losing, but I haven't lost the war, my war
But I haven't lost the war, my war

Tell me that I'm fortunate, tell me I'm a lucky boy and I'll nod my head
Tell me that I'm better off and I'll be all right
Because it's only talk
And now my hands are cold while my gray hairs multiply
And my teeth feel like a pile of jagged stones
This boy is getting old

Another battle I'm losing, better than crying to be numb, I've heard (x6)
Another battle I'm losing, but I haven't lost the war, my war
But I haven't lost the war, my war

Let's act like we're all heroes, we'll sing like drunk gorillas
Things don't seem all that bad if I don't stay awake too long

It's all work and no play
Another battle I'm losing, better than crying to be numb, I've heard (x6)
Another battle I'm losing, but I haven't lost the war, my war
Another battle I'm losing, better than crying to be numb, I've heard (x6)
Another battle I'm losing, but I haven't lost the war, my war

    General Commentokay, since nobody ever commented on this and i usually don't get any responses on any messageboard whatsoever anyway, .. I'll give it a try.

    :-)

    he's singing about losing a BATTLE but not a WAR. so, could it be that in the line "we'll sing like drunk gorillas" he's not saying GORILLAS but GUERILLAS?

    i would really like it to be like that.

    :-)
