When I’m getting closer
To the finish line
No reason to think that
It’ll be different this time
It’s in this exact place
Where I feel unnerved
Cause I know what’s coming
Right around the next curve

It’s an army whose chanting
Their battle cry against me
I hear them singing

This is the place where it all falls apart
The moment before you arrive

It could be my own doing always bringing me here
It could be the devil it really isn’t that clear
It could be my enemies trying to trip me up and make me fall
It could be some of these things
or none of these things at all

It doesn't really matter who writes the inscription
The sign on the path says

This is the place where it all falls apart
The moment before you arrive

There’s a roadblock in my way
I can’t move and I can’t climb
There’s a sign above that says
The road is closed the path denied
