Lyrics

Knocking Down the Door by Wilfred Kozub

La la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la

They kicked us around, but they didn’t know us
We didn’t cry and we didn’t laugh
We were imperiled and insulted
We acted calm, but we were aghast!

(As soon as they say “I swear to God,” we know that it’s a lie
We’ve got ‘em and we’re not going to stand by!)

If we were lost, we didn’t know it
We were losing track of time
They were audacious and they were confusing
We were slightly hypnotized

(instrumental interlude . . . knocking down the door . . . knocking down the door)

When we were young and had ambition
We were put down time after time
We were afraid by our own admission
You could see it in our eyes

We were found when we got lost
We were feeling a bit better after awhile
And before long we would be strong
And we would all be singing . . . knocking down the door

(We handled them with kid gloves, for sure – never insecure
ANGER . . . smouldering in SILENCE)

Oo oo oo oo oo oo Oo oo oo oo oo oo

Oo oo oo oo oo oo Oo oo oo oo oo oo We’re knocking down the door!

Oo oo oo oo oo oo Oo oo oo oo oo oo We’re knocking down the door!

We’re knocking down the door!

We’re knocking down the door!

We’re knocking down the door
We’re knocking down the door
We’re knocking down the door

We’re knocking down the door
