lyrics

Slipping the rope
we will Bob and weave
maybe land one
Before he hits me

No corner-man
I’m overmatched
swinging wild
nearly off my feet

Another round
while he pummels me
sound of the crowd
is so deafening

I hit the floor
they’re screaming “more!”
up again
can’t accept defeat

And I can bring you back again
once you’ve had a taste
the sting will not erase
no matter what you believe

Holding out hope
for a brief reprieve
fighting the reflex
to retreat

I never saw
that old south paw
laid out flat
blinking at his feet

Beyond the ring where
my guard remains
behaving as I was
trained

Would I pass it on
if I had a son?
would I struggle
to refrain?

And I can bring you back again
once you’ve had a taste
the sting will not erase
no matter what you believe
