Don't let the bastards grind you down.

It'll try to pull you down
It'll try to pull you down
You can't let it drag you down
When they try and pull you down
When this world's a crooked place
You got to turn around and face
When the world's a wicked place
You got to fight to find a space
You got to fight to hold your ground

You got your head in your hands
and you're screaming at the floor
Everybody wants a piece
C'mon take a little more
I'll take a fistful of fury
A belly full of fire
Find a firm-footed flank
And we'll take it to the wire
Defeat is not an option
Defeat is not an option
Defeat is not an option
Defeat is not an...

It's not enough to just get by
But sometimes you let it slide
With your back against the wall
It's gonna take a while to fall
With your back into the wall
You're gonna have to face it all
And look the devil in the eye

When you find you're in a battleground
Find yourself a place to stand
Find a way to last it out
