A Solitary Mine

Last Cup, tip it up

This is getting old and so are you
Everything you know you can't do
Will run through your fingers just like sand
Enjoy it while you can

Like a snake between two stones
it itches in your bones
Take a deep breath and swallow
your sorrow tomorrow

So raise your cup and let's propose a toast
To the thing that hurts you most

It's your last cup of sorrow
What can you say?
Finish it today
It's your last cup of sorrow
So think of me
and get on your way

It won't begin until you make it end
Until you know the how the where and the when
With a new face you might surprise yourself

Like a snake between two stones
it itches in your bones
Take a deeper breath and swallow
your sorrow tomorrow

So raise your cup and let's propose a toast
To the thing that hurts you most

It's your last cup of sorrow
What can you say?
Finish it today
It's your last cup of sorrow
So think of me
and get on your way

You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself

That said, Forward.

You see the world through your cynical eyes
You're a troubled young man, I can tell
You've got it all in the palm of your hand
But your hand's wet with sweat and your head needs a rest
And you're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it

Why must you be such an angry young man
When your future looks quite bright to me?
And how can there be such a sinister plan
That can hide such a a lamb, such a caring young man
And you're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're killing yourself if you don't believe it

Get up (get up!)
Get back on your feet
You're the one they can't beat and you know it

Yeah, c'mon (come on!)
Let's see what you've got
Just take your best shot and don't blow it


And you're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're killing yourself if you don't believe it

Get up (get up!)
Get back on your feet
You're the one they can't beat and you know it

Yeah, c'mon (come on!)
Let's see what you've got
Just take your best shot and don't blow it
