Fight Test (Primitive demo With Helium Voice)

(The test begins...now.)

I thought I was smart
I thought I was right
I thought it better not to fight
I thought there was a virtue, in always being cool
So it came time to fight
I thought "I'll just step aside"
And that the time would prove you wrong
And that you would be the fool

I don't know where the sunbeams end
And the starlights begin
It's all a mystery

Oh, to fight is to defend
If it's not now then tell me when
Would be the time
That you would stand up and be a man
For to lose I could accept
But to surrender, I just wept
And regretted this moment
Oh that I, was the fool

I don't know where the sunbeams end
And the starlights begin
It's all a mystery
And I don't know how a man decides
What's right for his own life
It's all a mystery

'Cause I'm a man, not a boy
And there are things you can't avoid
You have to face them
When you're not prepared to face them
If I could I would
But you're with him, now I'd do no good
I should've fought him
But instead I let him
I let him take you

(The test is over...now.)
