lyrics

so I’ve been making decisions that even I don’t approve of
but I am living in a world full of wreckage that just don’t let up
I ain’t denying that reasons exist why I shouldn’t give up
but I’m tired of trying when I’m the only one who gives a fuck

I know that I’m no angel, but I’m working on my wings

there’s a bitter aftertaste when I swallow down my pride
but look a little closer at my face, & you’ll see I will survive
as for weakness, there’s no place, baby, I haven’t tried
if there were a lack of aftertaste, I just wouldn’t feel alive

I keep on searching for answers to questions that aren’t even there
if I stop looking, I’d be so afraid that I might have time to spare
& that means danger; I don’t know if I can keep on losing air
when I am riding on three worn tires & a heart that doesn't care

I know that I’m no soldier, but I’m brandishing my sword

there’s a bitter aftertaste when I swallow down my pride
but look a little closer at my face, & you’ll see I will survive
as for weakness, there’s no place, baby, I haven’t tried
if there were a lack of aftertaste, I just wouldn’t feel alive

I will follow in their footsteps,
& I’ll hold my head up to the sky
I may not have too much to show just yet,
but with honor, we will live and die

I know that I’m no savior, but I’m demanding to be free

there’s a bitter aftertaste when I swallow down my pride
but look a little closer at my face, & you’ll see I will survive
as for weakness, there’s no place, baby, I haven’t tried
if there were a lack of aftertaste, I just wouldn’t feel alive
