How it feels to win

 

Standing at the bottom of the crater

looking up

you know that a cab ride's not so bad

hold on hold on

ride it out

this can't last forever

you know you'll be better

when you can

 

But here it comes again

the mouth of cloth and steel

your hands twist inside yourself

and this is how it

 

this is what it feels like

this is what it means

a turn on the wheel of sacrifice

and one more inch of skin

this is what it feels like

this is how it feels to win

 

Every single problem's

a solution in reverse

all you need is time to work it out

all that distant screaming's

just the pounding of your nerves

walk the ledge

but never look on down

 

But here it comes again

the last thing you forgave

you try to swim against the tide

but it's coming on in

 

this is what it feels like

this is what it means

a turn on the wheel of sacrifice

and one more inch of skin

this is what it feels like

this is how it feels to win
