What will you do?
What will you do?
Every fool gets a lucky chance or two
I been waiting for the cards to fall
To catch all your mistakes
I been watching you to see you break

I watched you grow
I saw you fall again and again
You'd cut your knee
You'd start to bleed
But wouldn't let the pain in
You let the dogs bite at your ankles
Let the sunshine burn your eyes
But will you just walk away this time?

I'll watch you crumble into sand
If the right shows mercy
I'll use the left hand

    General Commentthis song basically says, you've gotten lucky your whole life and you think you're a badass but when you need help you're on your own.

    General CommentThis is my fav.
    And I love every one of these songs more than my own mom.
    It's the devil, telling us we're effed in the A.

    General Commentadam's voice is amazing in this one..
    the moan he does sends a good chill throughout.

    General CommentIn keeping with the parallels with The Odyssey, this could also be from the point of view of Poseidon, about his animosity toward Odysseus.
