There is no understanding in this hostile age
Sometimes I feel just like a rat locked in a cage
It's hard to live beyond the walls
It ain't no life at all
But don't you tear it down

[Chorus]
Take your chances, I'll take mine
Chasing thunder is only wasted time
Got no reason to walk that line
Heaven's waiting if I can make it home tonight

And with the years I've found a faith that gets me by
It shows me the truth in a hurricane of lies
My baby's left a light for me
That's really all I need
They won't bring me down

[Chorus]

Aimlessly rushing leaves you with nothing
You need some loving to make you feel alive
In less than a moment, life can be stolen
I know where I'm going, gotta get me there tonight

I'm holding on to what I can
Like any other lucky man
Love won't strike me, love won't sell me out

[Chorus]
