Vultures


Some of us, We’re hardly ever here.
The rest of us, we’re born to disappear.
How do I stop myself from being just a number?
How will I hold my head to keep from going under?

Down to the wire,
I wanted water but I’ll walk through the fire
If this is what it takes to take me even higher.
Then I’ll come through like I do
When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me, testing me.

How did they find me here? What do they want from me?
All of these vultures hiding right outside my door,
I hear them whisperin, they’re tryin to ride it out.
They’ve never gone this long without a kill before.

Down to the wire,
I wanted water but I’ll walk through the fire
If this is what it takes to take me even higher.
Then I’ll come through like I do
When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me, testing me.

Wheels up, I got to leave this evening.
I can’t seem to shake these vultures off of my trail.
Power is made, by power being taken
So I keep on running to protect my situation.

Down to the wire,
I wanted water but I’ll walk through the fire
If this is what it takes to take me even higher.
Then I’ll come through like I do
When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me, testing me.

Whatcha gonna do about it?
Whatcha gonna do about it?

Don’t give up, give up.
Don’t give up, give up, give up.

Vultures, Continuum
