lyrics

I’M BACK WITH A BANG
OR IS IT A VENGEANCE
WHATEVER KEEPS ME AROUND
AND INCREASES MY CHANCES

CUZ I’VE BEEN LONG ON WORDS
AND I’VE BEEN SHORT ON TIME
I’VE BEEN AROUND HERE ONCE BEFORE
I’VE BEEN LUCKY ALL MY LIFE

A FEAR OF LOSING SHADOW
LOVE KEPT IN NAME
AND HELD IN TITLE
RECEDE INTO THE NIGHT
AND HOLD POSITION
LIKE A SOLDIER SERVING

HIS OR HER COUNTRY
BECAUSE HE OR SHE
HAS A SENSE OF DUTY

THAT HE OR SHE HAD INSTILLED
WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG
AND STILL SO WEAK

THIS ISN’T ABOUT AN ARMY
THIS ISN’T ABOUT WHAT YOU PROBABLY THINK
I HATE WHEN I TRY TO BE TOO CLEVER
AND BE TOO CUTE
EVEN THOUGH THAT’S ME

IF I HAD TO GUESS WHAT THE SONG IS TRYING TO SAY
I’D HAVE TO STOP AND LISTEN
I’M NOT READY TO HEAR
BUT I’M NOT AFRAID
I JUST WANTED TO MAKE YOU SOMETHING

THERE IS NOT A SENSE OF DANGER
I HAVEN’T FELT AND THOUGHT
“YEAH, BUT NOT FOR ME”
AND I KEEP ON THINKING
THIS EVENING
COST ME DEARLY

AND I KEEP
COMING BACK
BECAUSE
I NEVER BURN ALIVE

IT’S A BLESSING AND A CURSE
IT’S A BIRTH AND A HEARSE
IT’S THE SPACE BETWEEN
THE ZERO AND FIRST

IT’S A BLESSING AND A CURSE
IT’S A BIRTH AND A HEARSE
IT’S THE SPACE BETWEEN
THE DRINK AND THE THIRST
IT’S A BLESSING AND A CURSE
TO RECEIVE WHAT YOU DESERVE
IT’S A JOY AND A BORE
AND IT FEELS LIKE A CHORE
