lyrics

1926, in the middle of nowhere
with fuck all but promises bought the hard way
leaving behind the few they had
in hope of better days ahead

but daddy.. there's nothing here
but desolate fields and a train track
and I'm sick of that drawer strapped to my back

i know, but listen to me son
this nothing could be every thing

my son, this "nothing" as you say
is a kingdom to build

this is our chance to start from scratch

we're going to build what has to be built
and we're going to dig what has to be dug
but i refuse to let go and die like a dog

i refuse to let go
i refuse to just survive

1926, somewhere up in the north
with fuck all but heart
looking forward, never turning back
knowing the going will be tough
