  • I'm the failure
    I'm everyone's fool
    And I'm losing my cool at the end

    I'm the loser
    My number's come up
    I've been hung up with thoughts of
    Revenge,
    Revenge,
    Revenge

    I watched you
    From my terminal view
    As you struggled to rise to your end

    I laughed hard
    At the insults we threw
    As the weight of the world found
    Revenge

    The world hung upside down
    I drew first blood
    I drew first blood
    With my hate for a crown
    I drew first blood
    I drew first blood
    Revenge

    I watched heaven
    Dying today
    And I'm gonna die here tonight

    I'm a villain
    I deserve to be dead
    I've been hung up for
    Wreckin' my life
    Revenge

    So I stopped for a moment
    To look at the sun
    Dying a day

    That's when the irony hit me
    That this was revenge
    Love had descended
    And stolen our pain
    Away

    We consumed heaven's Son
    I drew first blood
    I drew first blood
    My hate was undone
    I drew first blood
    I drew first blood
    Revenge

    Here's a story
    How a thief had been robbed
    How a murder had stolen my rage

    Think of me, Lord
    I'm a few breaths away
    As my lungs finally rip from the
    Cage...
    Revenge
