  • I'm not a savior
    I ain't no traitor
    They're the ones who lie to you
    Is this the end?
    End of an era
    Spent too long living in fear?
    My darkest days have come
    And pulled me under
    I want my moment in the sun
    Should I spell it out for you?
    No one here is bullet, no one is bulletproof

    In all this mayhem, you've made me feel again
    But some of me won't be saved
    I've tried to change, I've got my ways
    Losing grip and sanity
    I know, I know, I know, I know
    I know it's such an awful thing, for me to do
    I won't, I won't, I won't, I won't, I won't
    I won't give up on me, if you don't too
    Should I spell it out for you?
    No one here is bulletproof
    And what are you to do?
    Then battle, battle on through, oh, battle on through

    Should I spell it out for you?
    No one here is bulletproof
    And what are you to do?
    Then battle, battle on through
    Should I spell it out for you?
    For you, for you

    I'm not a savior, but I ain't no traitor
    They're the ones who lie to you Writer/s: Christopher Miller, Daniel Flint, Josh Franceschi, Matthew Barnes, Max Helyer
