lyrics

There are heroes among us, though we'd never have known

for life sets its path upon us as the wind decides to blow

and sometimes it gusts against you when the fire's not enough

but your luck will turn. So, we could never give up



Your opponents may be giants, they say too tall to fall

but truth’s never so foreboding as the shadow on the wall

The arena may fill with darkness when you’re grasping for a light

Bring out your fight! We could never give up



(chorus) No matter what they throw at us, we could never give up

Keep your heart strong and your head up

We may taste the mud on our tongues, the sky's dripping with blood

but the sun will rise. We could never give up



If hell sets itself upon us, if the fault lines all erupt

If the ground drops out beneath us, will you say you've had enough?

And the black paint covers the wall like when death sets behind our eyes

but tonight we'll rise. We could never give up



(repeat chorus)

There's no light. Hard to cope. Hard to fight when there's no hope

Winter comes, darkness grows, feed your fire, we could never give up



(repeat chorus)
