  • Everybody out for my blood, everybody want my percent
    I don't want to start going off, I don't
    Want to start talking shit
    They just want to take what is mine, how much more can they get
    I already know what they want, I already know what they spent
    Nowadays I think like a moment, why they looking for blood
    I'm about to get what they owe, gonna get back what they stole

    Let me talk to the fans, every time I walk in the door
    They just want to take my advance, but I won't stop til they know
    Walk with me now

    When I retaliate, you're gonna know
    The mourning of sweet revenge
    Pain and suffering will come to those when I get even it's such a
    Sweet revenge [Repeat: x4]

    I bet they won't stop til I quit, I bet they won't leave til I go
    Ain't gonna hurt me a bit, one monkey won't stop the show
    I've been through dirt and sand, traveled to foreign lands
    Been to hell and come back, I ain't gonna go there again
    Why they wanna cause me to trip, why
    They wanna see me take a fall
    They wanna get something for nothing,
    Wanna see me jumping and running

    Let me talk to the fans, never gonna stop doing this
    Til I'm deep in the ground, come way too far to give in
    Walk with me now

    When I retaliate, you're gonna know
    The mourning of sweet revenge
    Pain and suffering will come to those when I get even it's such a
    Sweet revenge [Repeat: x4]

    When I retaliate, you're gonna know
    The mourning of sweet revenge
    Pain and suffering will come to those when I get even it's such a
    Sweet revenge [Repeat: x4] Writer/s: CHRIS CORNELL, JAMES WASHINGTON, JEROME HARMON, TIMOTHY MOSLEY
