Nothing In Our Way

from by Paper Tigers



Who will I be with no more enemies?
No thousand yard stares
No more sights or crosshairs
Swords to ploughshares

No revenge thrills
Won’t tilt at windmills
No slings or arrows
Fists or firecrackers
Knives or elbows

As long as I have blood coursing through my veins I’ll fight
Through swelling ebbs to clean clear lanes and a shaft of light
And I won’t be damned
Won’t listen to the doubt that can hold its sway
And there will be nothing in our way

Superstition breeds acquisition
Left them bleeding
But your once-rising tide is now receding

No more difference
No more distance
Hearts are see-through
Leave it all behind you
That’s not what defines you

There will be nothing in our way …
