Walking Tall

by alexrambler

Lying in bed all day
Maybe theres something going on
So I try to find my black coat
It’s not top notch but it’s okay

Staring out the window now
The cars are just rolling by
So many people going somewhere
Some break the law some their vows

How long can you live with a lie
A lie that’s tearing you apart.
You can pretend and deceive
But you’re just deceived in your heart

I want more worlds to explore
I don’t want to be trapped
I’m walking out of that door
Hoping for some luck

I’m walking tall tonight
Through many tainted streets
In order to feel alive somehow
To get that feeling back in my gut
I’m no fool all right
I’m walking tall tonight

I hear and I see
Trouble all around the world
And many worries on my mind
Makes it so hard too feel

I feel for the ones
Those who never chase their dreams
The ones who struggle for a meal
Those constantly on the run

This is not easy to bear
Upon a single pair of shoulders
And some people just don’t care
They just do what their parents told ’em

I’ll never be one for fortunes of gold
What good shall it do for my mind
I’ve heard many stories told
And I’m gonna find my time

I’m walking tall tonight
Through many tainted streets
In order to feel alive somehow
To get that feeling back in my gut
I’m no fool all right
I’m walking tall tonight
