Lyrics

I bet I'm better off now
than I've ever been before
I lost but I found more
beyond the padded prison door
you know I'm now the bad one
I've spoiled all the fun
I shed my cloak of weakness
when I finally turned the gun
when I finally turned the gun.

There's things I'd like to say
so I'll say them to everyone
the shadow of your judgement
is taller than you are or ever were
as stubborn as I know I am
oh you're so much worse
I'd like to tell you what was wasted
when you chose just who should hurt
when you chose just who to hurt.

You cannot desecrate me
as full of blame as you may be
my colors run but you can't make me bleed
you can't make me bleed.

You know I wish you well
I wish I'd spared a little less
I'm old enough to take it
I'm too old to hold a grudge long in my fist
and if I have to be the bad one
and spoil all the fun
I'll show my naked strength
when I finally rest the gun
when I finally rest the gun
I'll rest the gun.
