Little bombs Submit Correct Lyrics

How can you ask for forgiveness?
So now you think that your crimes are victimless
I know you and your sins, your retributions
So how will you lay your penance down?

We all pay in time
So how will you clear your conscience
When your clock unwinds?

I've heard enough of your forked tongue
How do you know when the cuts are deep enough?
I know you like your stabs, your preemptive attacks
But how will you hold your demons down?

We're all judged in time
But how can you seek redemption
Using alibis?

You oughta know better than to bait your jailer
You oughta know, you oughta know better

How do you deal with the consequence
Now that we bear the weight of your arrogance?
I know you and your cons, your petty little bombs
But who will you blame your troubles on now?

We all pay in time
So how will you clear your conscience
When your lies unwind?

You oughta know better than to bait your jailer
You oughta know better than to test your luck
You oughta know better than to bite who feeds you
You oughta know, you oughta know better

How can you ask for forgiveness?
How can you think that your crimes are victimless?
I know you and your sins, your retributions
So how will you lay your penance down?

We're all judged in time
So how will you clear your conscience
When your lies unwind?
