"Defeated" as written by Kevin Call, Jeremy Brent Hiebert, Andrew Neufeld and Kyle Adam Profeta....
Here I've been going over reasons
And you keep looking over my shoulder
Hold me now to these promises I haven't made
Time will tell just how much you'll act on what you've said

Either way, my mind's been made up for me
Either way, it's wearing me thin because
Even when, resisting instinctively
Even then, I find myself broken and I'm kneeling defeated

I've been exhausted for too long
Wide open, so listen
When you keep charging
This blood has a beat that's running, it's running out
My blood has a beat that's running, it's running out
Our blood has a beat that's running out

Either way, we're treating this carelessly
Either way, it's wearing me thin because
Even when, resisting instinctively
Even then, I find myself broken and I'm kneeling defeated

I'm too exhausted for the long haul
And I'm kneeling defeated

    General CommentThe final act of life. Giving up. Let them control you. Life'll be much better, even it wears you out with them in charge of you.

    So. Just. Give. Up.

    It's about how I feel right now.
