You Lost Me There
Lyrics: John Popper
Music: Chan Kinchla

I've been hoping for some last stand
To bank everything on one heroic play
But when you're waiting for your big chance
I've come to learn that it don't go down that way
And I'm not talking about no free ride
I've stood by and I've watched them fade to dust
Its not for high ideals
'Cause you know I've tried
At some point I think everybody must

And you lost me there
What's the point of playing if you're trying to win
And I don't care
I can't get over and I can't get in

I wish that I could feel so free and wise
As to satisfy the justice that I crave
The sun will set again, the sun will rise
In the darkness I will have to try to be brave

And you lost me there
What's the point of playing if you're trying to win
And I don't care
I can't get over and I can't get in

In loving faith I know a time will come
When day and night, both you and I will see
If thats just a prayer, that thy will be done
Thats just the way I wanted it to be

And you lost me there
What's the point of playing if you're trying to win
And I don't care
I can't get over when I can't get in

What's the point of playing if you're trying to win
This song may be a reference to the music industry and its fickleness - the band simply wants to "play" and have fun, not "win" and shoot to the top of the charts, only to be manipulated.
If that's just a prayer, that thy will be done
"Thy will be done" is part of a line from the Lord's Prayer:
Our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debters. And lead vs not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
