Tug of war, back and forth
All regard goes, out the door
Set your sights on goals, and awards, become obsessed, and watch success unfold
Decrease the morals, increase the funds. Don't be to preachy if you want to be loved
Forget conviction, just have some fun
Mindless words can take you to number one

Say I'm selfish, say I'm changed, say I abandoned what I set out to be
Say I'm different, now say I'm lost
But I'll stay true no matter what the cost

I'll stand and fight for what I love, and know is right, I'll carry on. I'll carry on
Until my days are gone
You can try to turn me into something I am not. But I'll stay strong. I'll carry on
Until my days are gone

Careful, what you say, they don't need to know what you believe
God forbid, I stand for something. God forbid, I stand alone. God forbid I tell my story. God forbid, it offers hope

Sell your soul for platinum. Deny the truth for gold. You can be the next big thing if you turn your back on what you know

I'll stand and fight for what I love, and know is right, I'll carry on. I'll carry on
Until my days are gone
You can try to turn me into something I am not. But I'll stay strong. I'll carry on
Until my days are gone

I will never be like you, I'm not a puppet on a string, I'm not one of your machines
I'm not doing this for you. I'm not doing this for me. It's bigger than what you choose to see

I'll stand and fight for what I love and know is right
I will carry on. Until my days are gone
They try to turn me into something I am not, but I will carry on, I will carry on
Until my days are gone
