"Shell of a Fighter" as written by Steven John Wilson and Timothy John Bownass....
I dream of changes.
I change my dreams.
I feel so restless,
sometimes I get so mean.

why should I bother
finding the will,
when every movement I make
just seems like I'm standing still?

chorus:

the shell of a fighter,
the shell of a man,
the weight of a lifetime -
waiting for your healing hands.

and still I rise,
and still I dream,
and still I feel,
and I wait.

(chorus 1 repeat)

chorus 2:

why don't you hold me
when I need you to?
why don't you touch me
when I reach for you?

chorus 3:

why don't you hurt for me
like I do for you?
why don't you dream of me -
dream like I'm dreaming of you?

(chorus 1 repeat x 2)

the shell of a fighter

and still I rise,
and still I dream,
and still I feel,
and I wait.

the shell of a fighter
