Lyrics

Hello there, my enemy
Welcome to my punching spree
This is where I lay waste
And you go home bleeding
Didn't have to be this way
Should have stayed out of the fray
Now you're heading for a beating

Didn't mother warn you?
Now she's gonna mourn you
Being damaged's how you'll end this day
You're a big mess
'Cause I'm relentless
I gotta tell you, I'm on fire today

Crash and burn (crash and burn)
Some lessons are just hard to learn
Scathing eyes (scathing eyes)
That see things from only one side
Yet every misshapen spark
Suffers the judgment and pain
But just as light conquers dark
There's a beauty that's greater
Than pure symmetry can contain
So let's start the game!

Fool, you shouldn't stare into these eyes of fire
You're goin' to regret this little fight
You don't wanna mess with me
I'm something higher
Anguish you'll know for your miserable plight
Soon you'll bemoan your mistake of a life
You'll watch yourself suffer
You'll watch me ignite
(Yang!)

Usually I devastate
This time, might annihilate
Any minute now
You're gonna rue our meeting
Messing with my family
Means that soon you're history
The moments of your life are fleeting

Looking pretty tattered
Your blood is really splattered
Won't be long until I end this game
You're looking toothless
I'm feeling ruthless
Watch me burn as you go down in flames

Ache and yearn (ache and yearn)
Can't wait for the pages to turn
Play both sides (play both sides)
When truth you cannot recognize
And any remarkable heart
Has gone through the hardship and shame
That's born of standing apart
From the easily processed
The uniform army of "same"
And that's just so lame!

I dominate and desecrate, leave you in a foul state
Put you in the trash with that nonsense you perpetuate
Why you get me riled up? Don't you know I'm wild, bruh?
Bet you'll understand when I'm pissin' on your ashes huh
Told you I'm tortuous, when you feel the force of this
Blast you'll crash like a cardiac explosion, bitch
Bloody body, broken nose, screw it, it's a bloodbath
Try to get away but there's no escaping Alcatraz
Look what you made me do, told you I would slaughter you
Fools you lose, blood cold, ice water dude
Reach into my bag o' tricks hit you with the baddest licks
Ever, you'll never contend I win
Bringin' out the beast in me, challengin' my decency
Now I gotta ask, do you really want a piece of me?
Hope you ready for the pain, suffer when I hit your brain
Erase your essence from Earth, no need to explain

Fool, you shouldn't stare into these eyes of fire
You're goin' to regret this little fight
You don't wanna mess with me
I'm something higher
Anguish you'll know for your miserable plight
Soon you'll bemoan your mistake of a life
Watch yourself suffer
You'll watch me ignite![1]
