The Lyrics

this guy's bigger,
he's bigger than you,
and you're not than me
what round will this fight go to?
the swelling round my eyes
I haven't set him up,
he jabs too much

I sit in the corner,
I'm seeing the fog lights
losing by decision
trying to keep up with him
and I don't know if I can do it
oh no, I'm cut too much
I think I've bled enough
I stand as he keeps on jabbing,
I just want to leave the ring
I think I'm gonna die

Sonny Lister,
he had knockout power
I'm losing my progressions
trying to keep an eye or two
now I'm hurt, lost, a bloodied fool
oh no, I've bled too much
I never set him up

consider this,
the fight of the century
consider this,
the promoter brought me
now my knees gelled
what if all these haymakers
came flailing around?
now I've bled too much
I stand as he keeps on jabbing,
I just want to leave the ring
I think I'm gonna die

that was just my scream
I'm down now in round thirteen
