lyrics

IT’S HARD TO TELL WHO’S PLAYING GAMES WITH ME
I’VE NEVER BEEN ONE WITH MUCH LUCK…
WITH MUCH LUCK POLITICALLY

I TRY TO KEEP UP, BUT IT’S SO HARD WITH THIS WEIGHT THAT I DRAG
YOU AND YOUR KIND ALWAYS LET PEOPLE LIKE ME HOLD THE BAG

THERE’S A DOG AT MY BACK THAT I JUST CAN’T LEAVE BEHIND
I’VE GONE THROUGH MY WHOLE LIFE WITH SO MUCH ANGER INSIDE
BUT WITH AGE I BRING MY RAGE IN FOCUS
LENS THE LIGHT TO SPARK THE FUSE THAT SETS OFF THE EXPLOSIVE

I NEVER BACK DOWN IN THE RIGHT WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE
AND I’M ALWAYS LOOKING OUT FOR BEING TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF
BUT CAN’T STAY ON GUARD FOR EVERY SECOND OF MY LIFE
AROUND THE WRONG CROWD SOMEONE’S ALWAYS SNEAKING UP BEHIND WITH A KNIFE
AND PLANNING MY END

LOST IN FOCUS WHILE THE TRAITORS SURROUND
CLAWING AT WHAT IN MY SELF I HAVE FOUND
TARGETED BY THE KINGS WITHOUT CROWNS
DEFENSELESS UNTIL THEY MAKE A SOUND

IT’S AN EYE FOR IN THIS WORLD
I’VE SEEN A TOOTH GO FOR TWO
WHO WILL BE LEFT SMILING AFTER THIS, MY FRIEND?
WILL IT BE YOU?
I’VE LIVED A LIFELONG STUDENT OF TACTICS THE DANGEROUS USE
IF THAT KNIFE YOU POINT GETS TURNED AROUND IT JUST MIGHT RUN YOU THROUGH

FAILURE
CONQUEST
HATRED
AND RESPECT

LIFE IS FULL OF FAILURES, CONQUESTS, HATRED, AND RESPECT
WILL THIS BE A FAILURE OR CONQUEST?
I CHOOSE TO LIVE HATED WITH RESPECT
