They Send You Back to the Beginning

They send you back to the beginning
with tears in your eyes
making you try harder,
to get it right.

Alone you feel the mountains
of the spirit at your shoulder
and in the heavy darkness
you start to rise

They send you back to the beginning
because you didn’t do it right
they hurt you and make you terrified
So you start again lonelier
then you ever felt before
so vulnerable
with nowhere you can hide

Alone you feel the mountains
of the spirit at your shoulder
alone you feel the strength
when the world feels colder
and in the darkness
you begin to rise a little
and in that lonely darkness
you start to rise

They send you back to the beginning
you’ll have to get it right
you try
but it doesn’t work out
you’ll face them alone
with their weapons in their desks
and you don’t understand
what it’s all about
