(Intro)

Will I, have, what, it, takes, to endure, the swirling, whirlpool, of, fate?


(Chorus)

Your, heart, can become, your, greatest foe.

Keep, your, guard, up.

Don’t wait, to see, how, the onslaught, goes.

Keep, your, guard, up.

Put, your, armor, on, and, don’t think, that’s, enough.

You'll have, to be, tough, or, you’ll get, eaten, up.


(Verse 1)

I’ve seen, it, all, up, close.

Inside, outside.

In-between, underneath.

From, the top, of, the sky.

To, the bottom, of, the sea.


(Verse 2)

Riding, through, life, carelessly, leads to, destinies, of, misery.

I was, stubborn, and, didn’t believe, that, at, first.

But, after, the fun, was, done, my, stolen, pride, begun, to burn.

Until, nothing, remained, except, the ashes, of, betrayal, and hurt.


(Verse 3)

You’ll, never again, be able, to snare, me, in, your, traps.

I’ve learned, from, my, false, accusations, I'm, taking, off, this, mask.

I’m, wearing, a new, kind, of, skin, that, refuses to, tear.

I’m, going to, give, my, enemies, one, hell, of, a scare.


(Chorus)

Your, heart, can become, your, greatest foe.

Keep, your, guard, up.

Don’t wait, to see, how, the onslaught, goes.

Keep, your, guard, up.

Put, your, armor, on, and, don’t think, that’s, enough.

You'll have, to be, tough, or, you’ll get, eaten, up.


(Verse 4)

Inside, outside.

In-between, underneath.

Riding, through, life, carelessly, leads to, destinies, of, misery.

You’ll, never again, be able, to snare, me, in, your, traps.

I’ve learned, from, my, false, accusations, I'm, taking, off, this, mask.


(Chorus)

Your, heart, can become, your, greatest foe.

Keep, your, guard, up.

Don’t wait, to see, how, the onslaught, goes.

Keep, your, guard, up.

Put, your, armor, on, and, don’t think, that’s, enough.

You'll have, to be, tough, or, you’ll get, eaten, up.


(Outro)

Will I, have, what, it, takes, to endure, the swirling, whirlpool, of, fate?
