Standing Or Falling

I thought the beat inside me by now would have disappeared
I never thought it strong enough to ever take me here
It’s like a vision from another plane
Fighting against everything that’s practical and sane
Like a wandering minstrel from a bygone time
Fighting through the hardship for harmony and rhyme

So here I’m standing or falling
Here’s how I answer the calling
And whether it’s cool or appalling
Here I’m standing or falling
Here’s how I add to the story
Of thousands who’ve stood here before me
So listen to me or ignore me
Here I’m standing or falling

Don’t give up your day job, their advice to me
But it’s too late, that’s already history
I’ve got faith inside me, that’s my day job now
Now it’s up to others just how much I am allowed
Don’t care what the hours, don’t care what the pay
If someone’s humming something then that would make my day
(Repeat chorus)

So the beat inside me will not go away
It’s taken me right to the edge of where I used to stay
Don’t know if I’ll make it, it depends on how you see
Where you want to get to compared to now and here
Don’t care if I don’t make top hundred and one
Let the music play on, there’s room for everyone
(Repeat chorus)
