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
Revenge, revenge
Have hatred and gravity won

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 die here today
And I'm gonna die here tonight
I'm a villain, I deserve to be dead
I've been hung up for wrecking my life
Revenge, revenge

So I stopped for a moment
To look at the sun
And die in the day
That's when the irony hit me
This was revenge
That love had descended
And stolen our pain away

We consumed Heaven's Son
And I drew first blood
I drew first blood
And 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
