Anger shakes the house of cards
Loving cup upon the bars
We bend the truth to help us through the night
Tempers thrown against the wall
Shattered like an empty glass
Nothin' can save us from our own selves tonight
Anger is a might sword
Vengeance is our own reward
Love goes bling one eye at a time
Gonna cut away from the ties that bind
Hey, hey

There's an edge within my voice
Helps me win when I should lose
We pick and choose our weapons carefully
Words are twisted like a fist
Behind our backs no slight of hand
No battle ever ended in a kiss

Anger is a might sword
Vengeance is our own reward
Love goes bling one eye at a time
Gonna cut away from the ties that bind
Hey, hey

Anger shakes the house of cards
Loving cup upon the bars
We bend the truth to help us through the night

Anger is a might sword
Vengeance is our own reward
Love goes bling one eye at a time
Gonna cut away from the ties that bind

From the album "gravity's rainbow"
