No Surrender

I think I should try to sleep. But I thought I would post these lyrics as an attempt to stay hopeful. I have to admit that my hope is fading, but I don’t want to think about Kerry not winning. It’s just too horrific to think about what the United States and the world might be like after another four years of Bush.

We busted out of class had to get away from those fools

We learned more from a three-minute record than we ever learned in school

Tonight I heart the neighborhood drummer sound

I can feel my heart begin to pound

You say you’re tired and you just want to close your eyes and follow your dreams down

We made a promise we swore we’d always remember

No retreat, believe me, no surrender

Like soldiers in the winter’s night with a vow to defend

No retreat, believe me, no surrender

Now young faces grow sad and old and hearts of fire grow cold

We swore blood brothers against the wind

I’m ready to grow young again

And hear your sister’s voice calling us home across the open yards

Believin’ we could cut someplace of our own

With these drums and these guitars

We made a promise we swore we’d always remember

No retreat, believe me, no surrender

Blood brothers in the stormy night with a vow to defend

No retreat, believe me, no surrender

Now on the street tonight the lights grow dim

The walls of my room are closing in

But it’s good to see your smiling face and to hear your voice again

We could sleep in the twilight by the river side

With a wide open country in our hearts

And these romanics dreams in our heads

We made a promise…
