I can't stand this incessant struggle against elements that never fold
Conviction will not beget once more disinspiration besets
Doubt often sprouts in minds of even the most devout
No phoenix will rise for the beaten down and worn out

So we'll set our marks high and we'll aim for the whites in their eyes
Remember your alibi, falsify what underlies
We must not be petrified or be placed on standby
Nor must we turn a blind eye to any desperate outcry

The water freezes where it doesn't flow
Stationed objects do not reach new plateaus
Frustration can deal a mortal blow
When exhaustion sways to-and-fro

Breathe new life into what has died
Remain firmly planted against the tide
Only truly trust what you feel inside
Do not be fooled by the lies of those who only abide

We're in an incessant struggle against elements that never fold
Conviction will not beget once more disinspiration besets
Doubt often sprouts in minds of even the most devout
No phoenix will rise for the beaten down and worn out

And no matter how down
No matter how down
No matter how down
Please keep pushing
