We wrestle with tomorrow,
till tomorrow's in the past,
We can tear apart whats beautiful,
To prove that nothing lasts,

I have stayed locked behind this door,
To prove there's no way out,
I got lost within the states between,
The question and the doubt,

On an ordinary day,
In an ordinary way,
I have combed the cracks of virtue,
For a place to lay the blame.

I have hated I have lied,
been guilty and denied,
I've dismissed the ones who questioned me,
declaring I am right,

What if I'm wrong
What if I'm wrong

I have built a wall between,
What I believe and what is true
I have sacrificed the love I had,
For power over you,

I have hated those who disagree,
I have walked over the weak,
I have placed the gun within the mouth,
Of those who dare to speak,

On an ordinary day,
In an ordinary way,
I have crushed the minds of children,
With extraordinary shame,

and I have carried on this war,
No one wins an endless fight,
I have claimed that God is guiding me,
and killed to prove I'm right,

What if I'm wrong
What if I'm wrong
What if I'm wrong
What if I'm wrong

Is this soul worth saving at all?
If I lose my wings then surely I must fall.
And God will say, fall insane.

We wrestle with tomorrow,
till tomorrow's in the past,
We can tear apart whats beautiful,
To prove that nothing lasts,

We can stay locked behind the door,
To prove there's no way out,
We go lost ithin the states between,
The question and the doubt,

What if we're wrong

    General CommentVery moving song. Different style of lyrics than most of his previous works, but it's just as powerful. I am glad to hear some new stuff out of this extraordinary musician after so many years.

    General CommentFinally! Some new stuff from the man himself. It's taking forever for his new album to come out. Wish Lisa was backing him in this song instead though

    General CommentDamien has written this song for the documentary 'When the dragon swallowed the sun' about the issues and conflicts in Tibet. He first wrote it in 'you' form to point at the suppressors over there and what they had done - he then realised, however, that he could not point at them without pointing at himself. For all that they had done, he had basically done as well. So even though initially the song was not about himself, it turned out that it could be interpreted like that anyway.

    I just love, love, love this song! It's so full of emotion and power, yet fragile. Love it.
