lyrics

Don’t fear the beast for being ugly
It’s pure with no pretty face to hide behind
Or trash art for being lovely
Why curse what never will exist inside
Inside

Don’t hang the thief for being hungry
You'd change with no money and hunger pangs, how-
Does fame make the rich so lonely?
They sulk with the luxury they are endowed
In doubt

I play no games
You string me out baby
Rescue me as I descend
Thorn in my side
Keep bleeding out anguish
Pullin’ straws with no short ends

Your silver bullet

Why blame a fire for burning something?
It acts on what nature dictates it dissolves
Then maim me for living freely
Without the problems that you soon would cause
The cause

I play no games
You string me out baby
Rescue me as I descend
Thorn in my side
Keep bleeding out anguish
Pullin’ straws with no short ends

Your silver bullet
