Lyrics

That's pride you see in the boxer's eyes Kneeling on the mat He knows that he's been beaten But he's not finished, yet 'Cause quittin's worse than spittin' blood And livin' with the hurt And every memory that he has is of the rising From the dirt Sometimes, pride is all you have And that can be enough 'Cause pride will push you to the edge And it will make you tough Money buys the best of things You will never know defeat And you can watch that boxer Safe there in your front row seat CH: Rich boys go to college Poor boys go to work They sweat and toil their lives away Never far above that dirt Rich men live in gated homes And they hide behind their walls But they'll never know how sweet the pride That goes before the fall Pride goes before the fall, they say And God will help the poor But ask for proof of either one And they'll be out the door 'Cause camels pass through needles' eyes And rich men own the world And poor men work themselves to death Still believing in the Lord repeat CH: Pride goes before the fall And God will surely help the poor Rich men own the world The poor don't even own the dirt But quittin's worse than spittin' blood And livin' with the hurt And every memory that you have Is of the rising from that dirt Rich men live in gated homes And they hide behind their walls But they will never know how sweet the pride That goes before the fall
