Enemy - Lyrics

I'm stuck here, in the corner
I'm blinded by fear and the disorder
Of my mind's contents, I just can't sort 'em
I am gettin' pounded and my vision is going
I try to swing back at my enemy
But every time I do, he gets the best of me
Simple concepts are now blurring in front of me
No sense of direction, I'm just swingin' aimlessly
When I'm not in the ring, my biggest enemy
He stands right around the corner, waiting for me
When I least expect it and my day is going okay
He jumps on every chance that he gets to try and destroy me
I cannot run from him because he always catches up
Even if it takes some time, he'll find me, he won't stop
He whispers in my ear and tells me that I'm going nowhere
At this point I believe him because so far I am still here
He says that I have no direction and no motivation
And the more I think about it, I've come to the realization that
So far everything I've done has had no implications
For any kind of future where I exceed expectations
But then I realize it's because of the mindset
That my opponent's managed to drill into my head
If I could defeat him then maybe I could try harder
But every time I step into that ring, I get slaughtered

Why can't I beat my enemy?
Every time I fight back he tramples me
And it's not like I can just up and leave
'Cause my biggest enemy is me, I said
Why can't I beat my enemy?
Every time I fight back he tramples me
And it's not like I can just up and leave
'Cause my biggest enemy is me, yeah

My flesh is my opponent who keeps me on my toes and
He never lets me go where, I know I should be going
Lookin' back to last year, it's been a long time
And how far have I come? The difference ain't inspirin'
Honestly, I'm sick of this, can't do this anymore
Cuz I can't fight temptation alone, I need the help of the Lord
I've made some big mistakes in my life, but the past is in the past
There ain't no going back and now I can decide
To keep movin' forward, choose the path that is right
Knowing that I can do that only because Christ has died
And I won't keep on wasting one more second of my life
Nah, I'ma stay on top of my enemy until the day he dies

Why can't I beat my enemy?
Every time I fight back he tramples me
And it's not like I can just up and leave
'Cause my biggest enemy is me, I said
Why can't I beat my enemy?
Every time I fight back he tramples me
And it's not like I can just up and leave
'Cause my biggest enemy is me, yeah
