Go away, I'm in too truthful a mood to talk
Lines on the map tangled up when my heart gets lost

Cut me down to size
Cut me down to size
I believe
Cut me down

Everybody said, "it ain't gonna be easy"
Nobody said, "kid it's gonna get hard"

Heaven's a place for only those who pay their bills on time
And fate has a way of turning innocence into a crime

Cut me down to size
Cut me down to size
I believe
Cut me down

Everybody said, "it ain't gonna be easy"
Nobody said, "kid it's gonna get hard"

They say, "give up and go back where you belong
Dreaming's for the dead, the road is too long"
Middle finger in the air, I'm still here
Egging them on

The road's paved the same way for sinners and saints
I believe
Beginners test the water and suffer the fates
You don't know what I've seen
You don't know what I've seen
You don't know what I've seen
You don't know this is what I always wanted

Everybody said, "it ain't gonna be easy"
Nobody said, "kid it's gonna get hard"

They say, "give up and go back where you belong
Dreaming's for the dead, kid, the road is too long"
Middle finger in the air, I'm still here
Egging them on

My finger in the air
Egging them on

    General CommentThis song is about their journey over the last 20 years on the road.
    "Everybody said it ain't gonna be easy, nobody said kid it's gonna get hard"
    But they are still there with their "finger in the air " egging all the ney Sayers on.
