Anthrax – Gridlock Lyrics

It’s a long time, a long time comin’

You tell me how you think I should be

It’s so easy

You tell me what people want from me

Well I’ll just be myself

It’s the only way I can be but you don’t see

You accuse, abuse integrity

You don’t know one damn thing about me

Not one damn thing

Build me up and then you tear me down

Curse my name when I’m not around

You’re so hard until the truth is found

What goes round always comes around

And it’s a

Long time, long time

A long time comin’

A long time, long time

A long time comin’, a vicious circle

In your face I’ll come runnin’

Try and stop me

A long time, much too long

And I’m comin’

Try and stop me

I like to keep my friends around me close

But my enemies closer

Friends accept me for just who I am

Not someone I’m supposed to be

Or something they expect for free

Do you know me?

I live with myself, I know my place

Wipe that bullshit smile off your face

The show is over

Build me up and then you tear me down

Curse my name when I’m not around

You’re so hard until the truth is found

What goes round always comes around

And it’s a

Long time, long time

A long time comin’

A long time, long time

A long time comin’, a vicious circle

In your face I’ll come runnin’

Try and stop me

A long time, much too long

And I’m comin’

Try and stop me

You and me are gonna take a walk

I think it’s time we had a little talk

I said, you and me are gonna take a walk

And we’re gonna do more than walk and talk

Let me see how you think I should be

You think it’s so easy?

Put yourself on trial everyday

Against a hung jury

You don’t know a thing about me

You believe the hype you see

But in my heart God knows I’ll be true

To what my life will bring

And it’s a

Long time, long time

A long time comin’

A long time, long time

A long time comin’, a vicious circle

In your face I’ll come runnin’

Try and stop me

A long time, much too long

And I’m comin’

Try and stop me
