The devil and the deep blue sea

When what you want becomes what you get,
When what you get becomes what they hate
When what they hate is what you don't want
When what you don't want is the thing you hate

And you can't back down cos you know it's right
And they won't back down cos your end's in sight
And the night won't die because there's no light
And the light snuffed out puts your fears to flight

I have no answers to make things right
I have no way to correct their sight
I can't back down from the blinding light
I can't see out, put my soul to flight
