You and I up against the world.
Your money's on them.
Leavin me to fend for my own.
You just wait for the K.O.
Plug me into that life support.
Singin me flat lines.
Hear it call, the ring,
here I come.
Dead on arrival.

Well, heaven be waiting to take me out.
What happened to showing me some mercy?
Cause all that I am, and all that I can be
Is a man, not knowing what I am
Up against.

Pull me out of this rut I'm in.
I'm diggin six feet down.
I'm gonna make a mark if it means
Feeding the earth from which I came.

Well, heaven be waiting to take me out.
What happened to showing me some mercy?
Cause all that I am, and all that I can be
Is a man, not knowing what I am?
Up against this town, feeling like
This is our routine of life.
I feel that eye zeroing on me.
Ohh, knew it then, know it now
Hasn't changed, it never will.
I'm just a man, don't know who I am.

You and I up against the world.
Down for the count.
Could it be that we've lost a nerve.
Or simply unable.

Well, heaven be waiting to take me out.
What happened to showing me some mercy?
Cause all that I am, and all that I can be
Is a man, not knowing what I am?

Up against this town, feeling like
This is our routine of life.
I feel that eye zeroing on me.
Ohh, knew it then, know it now
Hasn't changed, it never will.
I'm just a man, don't know who I am.
Up against
