Paratrooper's Battlecry - Lyrics

Feels like I'm cursed when the drugs don't work
So I bought a statue of Jesus
And listen to Abby's old high school demos
And smoked a bag of reefer
I got bills coming up, debts still due
And I've got too much on my mind
To stay in the moment
It's always blowing out the windows and into the night

Stay behind me
My one sweet Loraine
Stay in the shadow of the tower that fell
Build me a castle, Maria, I'd pray
Take these weeds outta my head
When I'm barely living and almost dead
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Almost dead

I'm sick of getting lifted
Sick of going under
Tired of giving too much
I've been down in a hole for so long
I don't know if any love could fill it back up
I gotta move on and learn the times to be brave
Can't live in them old mistakes
And I remember what TK said:
"You can't scare no boat by looking back at the wake"

Stay behind me
My one sweet Loraine
Stay in the shadow of the tower that fell
And build me a castle, Maria, I'd pray
Way up high and outta my head
When I'm barely living and almost dead
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Almost dead

Stay behind me
My one sweet Loraine
Stay in the shadow of the tower that fell
And build me a castle, Maria, I'd pray
Take these weeds outta my head
When I'm barely living and almost dead
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Almost dead
