I've been into bad business
I've been out of my mind
I've been playing in traffic
I've been suffering in kind
I've ben out in bad weather
A cause for concern
In the art of surrender
I've got so much to learn

Oh I know i should reach out
from my confines
These battle lines
But finding the words is as hard
As finding the time

(Chorus)

Battle lines
I keep fighting all the hurt I've felt
Battle lines
I keep saying I don't need your help
Everybody else knows
I'm only keeping secrets from myself

I've been drawn to disaster
A willing volunteer
I've been brought to a standstill
By a burgeoning year
Got a bleak mental palette
But I paint what I see
I've been handing out secrets
To the landscape in me

Oh I don't know
when I drew up theses battle lines
My confines
I play the part of the prisoner
And the jailer combined

Battle lines
I keep fighting all the hurt I've felt
Battle lines
I keep saying I don't need your help
Everybody else knows
I'm only keeping secrets from myself

Alone in a lover's twilight with
my doubts to keep me warm
Watching for a ray of sunlinght
to make it all transform
It will in time

Oh I know I should reach out
from my confines
These battle lines
But finding the words is as hard
As finding the time

Battle lines
I keep fighting all the hurt I've felt
Battle lines
I keep saying I don't need your help
Everybody else knows
I'm only keeping secrets from myself (2X)
