Knock Out


Referee starts the countdown
And I’m not even up on my knees
I can’t hear them yelling knockout
I can see them packing up to leave

Then I look to my corner
And there’s nobody there
There’s nobody there
There’s nobody there

And I can’t get up
And I can’t get up
And I can’t get up
And I can’t get up

Don’t remember ever being laid so low
Don’t remember ever feeing so ashamed
My head is hanging and I’m reaching for the ropes
Will this be the way it ends

Then I look to my corner
And there’s somebody there
There’s somebody there
There’s somebody there
They’re saying

Gotta get up
Gotta get up
Gotta get up
Gotta get up
Gotta get up
Gotta get up

Referee’s almost finished
Now he’s staring me right in the eyes
He asks me do I feel alright
Well I nod my head to tell him
“He’s back!” the crowd is yelling

Then I look to my corner
I see everybody there
I see everybody there
I see everybody there
They’re saying

He’s standing up, he’s standing up, he’s standing up
He’s standing up, he’s standing up, he’s standing up
He’s standing up, he’s standing up, he’s standing up
I’m standing up, I’m standing up, I’m standing up
