You always needed people like me
Directions for your fingers to point
A crooked dealer's blaming spree
I'm guaranteed to disappoint
You're weak and scared and cutting raw deals
But fortune always favours the bold
I'll bet it all and crush your bluff
I'll never yield nor ever fold.
And I won't shoulder the blame.
I am the one who's left to take the fall
I fight the constant undertow.
You always needed a distraction
A target for the stones that you thrown
To draw attention to your actions
I'm tailor made so lock & load
Oh, you're telling tales
You spineless coward
Your word's not worth it's weight in shit
Back against the wall, belligerent.
I won't shoulder the blame
So high and mighty
But when the bottom drops out
You're gonna find me standing where you left me.
Deal the last hand, let the cards fall where they may
From your castle made of sand you're looking down at me
So high and mighty
But when the bottom drops out
You'll have to face me waiting where you left me
