Hail St. Sebastian is an unreleased song by the Mountain Goats.

LyricsEdit

It gets harder to keep trying to hold on
Watch our hopes take wing
Wave at them when they're gone
Plunge like suicides from rooftops
Break our ankles when we land
And bless the arrows
That strike us where we stand

If it doesn't crush me
It's alright
If it doesn't break me
It's alright
All the petty demons trying to break me in two
I was born stronger than any of you
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright

It gets complicated
When they come in for their counterattack
Everybody hates a victim
Who won't stop fighting back
Sprayed blood in their faces
Play for keeps
And bless the brave assassins
Who strike us while we sleep

If it doesn't crush me
It's alright
If it doesn't break me
It's alright
All the petty demons trying to break me in two
I was born stronger than any of you
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright
