I'll Tell you when I'm dry and sober
When the smoke has cleared the room
when I'm done kicking around my troubles
when my memory has lost it's roots

When my hands aint bound and wounded
when I'm not haunched over from a fight
I'll tell you when the round is over
I'll tell you it all when I've closed my eyes

I'll tell you when I aint under a spotlight
and the sweat in my eyes doesn't sting
when I've finished screaming at that stranger
who's slipped inside my skin

I'll tell you when the rush has ended
when my smile no longer bleeds
When I'm done stumbling backwards
giving the crowd what they came to see

When the game no longer needs me
and the scars are all that remains
When I ain'f half spent from adrenaline
or waiting for that bell to ring

I'll tell you when the mask doesn't fit me
and I've stopped wearing another mans suit
when I aint searching for a gamble
or a place to hide from they truth

I'll tell you when I'm no longer in the corner
blocking punches, tied to the ropes
I'll tell you when my head aint cloudy
that my darling, you were always my home.
