What's The Point

from by Mark Jones & Twenty Paces

lyrics

I’ve built walls around my heart, to keep you at a distance
They’re far too high for any man to climb.
And you’ll say that it’s my fault, when I meet you with resistance
But the stones you throw they add up with time.

You use your words like a hammer, trying to nail me down
I just board up the windows and the doors
And you you’ll say that I was wrong, even if you don’t believe it
The battle turns into another war

You say what’s the point in fighting boy, we’ve got you surrounded.
We’ve laid siege to everything you claim.
I can feel the cold steel of a rifle at my back.
And I ask you what’s the difference, when the triggers in your hand.

A man should know when he’s defeated, take his pride and walk away
Yet history will prove that it’s not true.
My fight be not in vain, if the story is remembered
That I stood up, against the likes of you.
