A Raindance In Traffic lyrics

I'm fanaticizing about doing a raindance in traffic.
I'm fanaticizing about a storm to wash me away.
Well if you'd study the laugh-lines, you'd see that I'm cracking.
But I spent six months now feeling like dead weight

The fighter in me must have died a long time ago.
I must have been watching his ghost
Just going through the motions
Just putting on a face.
It feels like 1929 and I'm on the verge of a great collapse today.

Every window in this house faces a brick wall.
I'm panicked and absent like a bird in a cage.
Well the word from the front lines says that we're out-gunned
but I can't walk away. No, I can't walk away. No, I can't.

The fighter in me must have died a long time ago.
I must have been watching his ghost
Just going through the motions
Just putting on a face.
It feels like 1929 and I'm on the verge of a great collapse today.

I was just happy to be a contender. I was just aching for anything.
I used to have such steady hands, but now I can't keep them from shaking.
I was just happy to be a contender. I was just aching for anything.
And I used to have such steady hands, but now I can't keep them from shaking.
(Can't keep them from shaking)

I was just happy to be a contender.
(I can't keep them from shaking)
I was just aching for anything.
(I can't keep them from shaking)
I used to have such steady hands
(I can't keep them from shaking)
I used to have such steady hands
(I can't keep them from shaking)
