lyrics

Raised on believing the golden rule, stay calm in the face of the cold and cruel
But I can't take it, I'm losing ground, why should I put up with being held down?
So sick of playing everyone's fool. Spend all your time showing respect but none is shown back to you.
Disrespected. A steady hand always keeping me locked up, someday I'll escape it and my aggressors will end up fucked.

I'm on the verge of lashing out, all my life spent under people's doubt
I'm gonna show you what I can do when lines are drawn between me and you

Let the bridges burn
Let the blood spill now
Let my enemies fall

Raised on the lies of catholic rule, turn the other cheek when they fuck with you
but it's all bullshit, this pointless guilt, I won't let them destroy what I've built
No longer playing anyone's fool. Those days are through, because I've given all and there's no more I can do.
I'm so fed up with this shit, you never paid for it, for the things you put me through.

I'm past the point of looking back, cause you forgot to ever cut me slack. Paid the price time and time again, but my one regret was calling you a friend.
