An Old Man of Steel Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Faster than a speeding bullet, words are just like that
Hard and loud and deadly, impossible to call back
I tried to block the words I spoke but I wasn't fast enough
My words ripped right through her heartlike a bullet through our love
Verse 2
I thought I was a superman and I could do anything at all
But I was just a stubborn man and I was destined to fall
I thought I had an iron will but that's been weakened by doubt
I'm just an old man of steelall rusted out
Just an old man of steelall rusted out
Verse 3
More powerful than a locomotive, ideas are just like that
With tons and tons of ego pushing them down the track
That train was full of my suspicions and I couldn't make it stop
And our love was stretched out on the rail, now there's nothing left to pick up
Verse 4
I thought I was a superman and I could do anything at all
But I was just a stubborn man and I was destined to fall
I thought I had an iron willbut that's been weakened by doubt
I'm just an old man of steelall rusted out
Just an old man of steel
Verse 5
I wasn't able to leap a tall building
That was a compromise I couldn't surmount
Stone by stone the building grew larger
While my feet barely left the ground
Verse 6
I couldn't leap high enough and she knew I never could
And all of my powers, in the endthey came to no good
I thought I had an iron will but I finally figured it out
I'm an old man of steelall rusted out
Just an old man of steelall rusted out
I'm just an old man of steelall rusted out
