I know that the sunset empire shudders and shakes
And I know there's a floodgate and a raging river
And I say, see the silence of the ribbons of iron and steel
And I say, hear the punch drunk huddle as they drive on hammer and steel

Sometimes you're beaten to the call, sometimes
Sometimes you're taken to the wall but you don't give in
Sometimes you're beaten to the call, sometimes
Sometimes you're taken to the wall but you don't give in

I know, I know that the cannibals wear smart suits and ties
And I know they arm wrestle on the altar
And I say, don't leave your heart in a hard place

Sometimes you're beaten to the call, sometimes
Sometimes you're taken to the wall, no, no
Sometimes you're beaten to the call, sometimes
Sometimes you're taken to the wall but you don't give in

Sometimes you're beaten to the call, sometimes
Sometimes you're taken to the wall
Sometimes you're shaken to the core, sometimes
Sometimes the face is gonna fall, but you don't give in

Sometimes you're beaten to the call, sometimes
Sometimes you're taken to the wall but you don't give in
