Super 8 Bit Brothers – Hey Kid, You’re On Your Own Lyrics

He showed no fear of pride
He took another drag and then stepped inside
There was a brand new name attached unto his gun

I thought I should be there
But for the grace of God no one would care
So I made my choice and turned from everyone

Them boys were still alive
But the air by now had turned to fire
There was a searing noise as numbers fell away

Can’t say I never tried
He looked down at me and then stepped aside
And he said the words i say to you today

He said, “Hey kid, you’re on your own kid
You’re on your own kid, you’re on your own.”
He said, “Hey kid, you’re on your own kid
You’re on your own kid, you’re on your own.”

She’s my place of total safety
She’s all I need to breathe, to feel, to come inside
But the target strikes we’re so precise
That I know my heart still beats ’cause it’s the only one alive

“Hey kid, you’re on your own kid
You’re on your own kid, you’re on your own.”
She said, “Hey kid, you’re on your own kid
You’re on your own kid, you’re on your own.”

One look to find
That I just made up my mind
But I’ve already walked this distance before
Seems to me that despite civility
They’re always saddled up and ready for more

They popped into the scene
And now life and death was everything
And the exodus left those behind for dead
But I passed you as I ran
And as we both locked eyes you extend a hand
And I bet you know the words that i just said

I said, “Hey kid, you’re on your own kid
You’re on your own kid, you’re on your own.”
I said, “Hey kid, you’re on your own kid
You’re on your own kid, you’re on your own.”
