Lyrics

Life is a battlefield

I will fight to my last breath

Each day I march until night steals in,

I camp one day closer to death

I camp one day closer to death

 

I’ve seen the crushing hand of fate,

Overwhelm my best defense

Played the odds but I have often found,

They are- -6 to 5 against

The odds are - -6 to 5 against

 

Wisdom’s been a hard won friend,

It comes with certain strings

Through Love and loss I realize:

The best things in life are not things

The best things in life are not things

 

I’ve prayed with sinners,

I’ve walked with Saints,

I have known all the in-betweens

The middle road is sage’s path;

There’s no balance in the extremes

There’s no balance in the extremes

 

We’re each given the gift of prophecy

We can choose either rags or wealth

The most fateful words we speak,

Are the words we say to ourselves

It’s the words we say to ourselves

 

Tomorrow is like a grand horse race

The winners stay off the fence

Press hard, do the best you can

The odds are - -6 to 5, against

 

Work hard; with luck, you’ll beat the odds

The odds are 6 to 5, against
