lyrics

Mike Medeiros / Gary Nicholson

I can strap on all my gear
And march into the fight
At the end of the day if I’m still here
I know I’m all right

When the bullets fly and bombs light the sky
I know what to do
But the silence of a lonely bedroom
Is so hard to make it through

Inside the armor
The fight still rages on
Inside the armor
It’s still all going wrong
Inside the armor
The wounds that never heal
Inside the armor
Is the only me that’s real

I wear my vest of foolish pride
And nothing can cut through
I have my mask of secrecy
I know what I must do

Fake it till you make it
I know I’ll be all right
If I you don’t wake up screaming
In the middle of the might

Inside the armor
The fight still rages on
Inside the armor
It’s still all going wrong
Inside the armor
The wounds that never heal
Inside the armor
Is the only me that’s real

I’m gonna try to let you in
And open up my heart
May take some time to strip it on down
But I’ll find a way to start
Inside the armor
That’s the only me that’s real
Inside the armor
I want to show you the only me that’s real
I want to show you
Inside the armor
