Matthew Ryan - Nobody Fails lyrics

We'd drive to the city
With a six pack and some smokes
And when I looked out at the power lines
All I saw were ropes

From a green Chevy Nova
With the sun in my eyes
The air smelled like vomit
When above the swamps we'd rise

Nobody fails, no one can lose
But you and me we get to choose

One step below the big time
Where no one knows your name
They cheer when you start bleeding
Later they'll sweep your guts down the drain

Where it mixes with the rain water
And the garbage and the piss
There was a girl I used to fight for
Her name's still on my fist

And I promised her a big house
On the safe side of Cherry Hill
And some nights when I'm not sleeping
I dream about her still

Nobody fails, no one can lose
But you and me we get to choose

I stood inside the office
Of the commissioner and promoter
They said, "No one's into it
You had a good run but it's over"

I tried to make as much sense
Almost everything I said was true
There were scouts coming down from the big time
Word was they were looking at you

So trust me when I tell you
We all want to take a stand
But for most people a win
Looks like getting away with what you can

Nobody fails, no one can lose
But you and me we get to choose
