It is raining
And I am trying
To keep a straight face
I wasn't lying when I said
You gave me comfort
In a time of violence
At that moment
I wasn't even sure
But even now I'd deny it
There's no point in flying
If you've got no wings to keep you guided
(pre-chorus)
Did you ever think about it?
I did, I did.
Did it ever cross your mind?
It crossed mine, it crossed mine.
Can you even contemplate?
I can't, no I can't
(chorus)
It's so hard to hold on where there's nothing left to lose
And who are you, to tell me what I am supposed to do?
I shouldn't have to choose, and I can tell you've got nothing better to do
I can try to read between the lines
But it all comes down to making the most of living on borrowed time
(verse 2)
There's still no answer
After years of trying
I think it's time to wake up
From the coma you put yourself into
Will you still reign victorious?
This is a moment I never want to end
(pre-chorus)
Did you ever think about it?
I did, I did.
Did it ever cross your mind?
It crossed mine, it crossed mine.
Can you even contemplate?
I can't, no I can't
(chorus)
It's so hard to hold on where there's nothing left to lose
And who are you, to tell me what I am supposed to do?
I shouldn't have to choose, and I can tell you've got nothing better to do
I can try to read between the lines
But it all comes down to making the most of living on borrowed time
(bridge)
What's gonna happen when I'm over the edge?
Should I hold on or let go?
Surely you'd know.
What's it like to live a meaningful life
Was it even worth a sacrifice?
(solo thingy)
(verse 3)
Even after dusk
Maybe silence is
All we really wanted to hear
A plastic smile
Always reassures
And reconfirms
That you're just a pretty thing
With your mind in a state of ease
You're so young, but naive
(ending little thing)
Today will be the day I investigate what went wrong and why memories are so vague
I wish I could remember everything after that night where I forgot who I was and drifted into sleep.

Leave feedback please! Not the best I know

It's not that bad, better than anything i could come up with. However it is very hard to imagine it in a song when listening to Metallica, so im sure its better than it came across in my mind

Man, thank God the russians created UG. Otherwise, how would I have gotten this information?

Yeh i agree. the lyrics sounds pretty good and probably a lot better with the proper music as opposed to the iron man song
