I'll Get Even

  • I'm lonely and abandoned
    Washed up, left for dead
    I'm lost inside the desert
    Of every word you said
    Like a nuclear reactor
    Or TNT
    I'm thinking about the times
    When you lied to me
    All the innuendo
    Caught up on your hook
    I was just a name
    In your little black book
    Ah, I'll get even with you
    I'm bitter and I'm twisted
    I haven't slept in days
    I'm lonely and I'm angry
    I can't make it go away
    I'm like a bomb that's ticking
    I got voices in my head
    I got a doll with needles in
    Wishing you were dead
    I'll get you back somehow
    That's what I'm gonna do
    I'll get you back somehow
    Your nightmare coming true
    Ah, I'll get even with you
    Ah, that's what I'm gonna do
    Gonna get even with you
    You better look behind you
    'Cause there I'm gonna be
    I'll be standing in the shadows
    With who I used to be
    He's slightly schizophrenic
    Me and me and me and me agree
    That you are gonna pay
    For what you did to me
    Ah, I'll get even with you
    Gonna get even with you
    Ah, that's what I'm gonna do
    I'm gonna...
    Ah, I'll get even with you
