Story Behind the Song

It's about picking yourself up, dusting yourself off, and kicking ass.

Lyrics

The Resurrection of Me
© Words and music by Chris Chickering (Chris Chickering

Downtrodden, given up, forgotten
Found my way all the way to the bottom
Lost everything I thought that I could lose

No hopin', give a damn, broken
Three-time loser with a subway token
Walkin' like a dead man in my shoes

But I swear I'll find a way to turn it all around
'Cause there's nothin' strong enough to keep my spirit down

Took a left, took a right
Sucker-punched by the fist of life, but I
Found on a way to get on my feet again
A little shaky from the blows
But I'll be damned if it takes my soul, 'cause I
Been down
But you'll see
This is gonna be
The resurrection of me yea, yea, yea
The resurrection of me yea, yea, yea

Cold-jaded, street-hated
Called a punk and a bum berated
Never thought I'd be the one to lose my way
But it's alright, 'cause I know now
Got another chance to pick it up somehow
So brother won't you hear me when I say?

I got a black-eyed soul but I still got a lotta heart
See it's never too late to nd a new place to start

Took a left, took a right
Sucker-punched by the st of life, but I
Found a way to get on my feet again

A little shaky from the blows
But I'll be damned if it takes my soul, 'cause I
Been down
But you'll see
This is gonna be
The resurrection of me yea, yea, yea
The resurrection of me yea, yea, yea

And I know they'll always be the ones who cast their doubts
After all that I've been through
Nothin's gonna hurt me now

Took a left, took a right
Sucker-punched by the fist of life, but I
Found a way to get on my feet again
A little shaky from the blows
But I'll be damned if it takes my soul, 'cause I
Been down
But you'll see
This is gonna be
The resurrection of me yea, yea, yea
The resurrection of me yea, yea, yea

Took a left, took a right yea
The resurrection of me...
The resurrection of me yea
Took a left, took a right
This is gonna be
The resurrection of me yea
