You wish you could hold her hand

You wish you could be a man

Well, I wish you could stand

All by your lonesome on your own two feet

I guess that's defeated, defeated


Well I wish you weren't babied dead

And I wish you could be self-fed

And we all wish to see you again

But you're far away buried and defeated, defeated


Defeated, that's what you are

Whatever happened to raising the bar

Defeated, that's what you've allowed

You've succombed and died to that miserable crowd

Persecution, that's what we're meant for

It's not just you, it's us all, we're at war

Defeated, can't say I'm proud

Defeated, don't cry too loud


You have up and shown me good

What kind of man-boy never should

Enter into war

A few toy arrows and you're falling to the cold ground, defeated, defeated


Well you have asked for my pity

And you have asked for my sympathy

But all I have to say is I won't be defeated, defeated


So don't pity yourself the jeering and the leering

Paul had much worse and so did Peter, dearie

Fine, go ahead and take up your gold cross

And march all around with your pity-eyed soul

But no. This is nothing. No. This is nothing.
