I know my uses
I have my pride
But my heart is still untamed
I learned my lessons
I've conquered death
I go on and I'm unashamed
I'll paint your bones to match my eyes
They're the darkest I have ever seen
Until I'm lucid, I can't be told
I know my voices
They tell me to believe

Another fucking accident out of control
All the attitudes will never change
My imitations are leading the way
I can't accept that I still don't find this strange

In light of my ability to feel denial
I walk away from everything with just a smile
The agony of coming home has gone away
It's everywhere
It's everyone
It's every day

Are you ready for the time of your life

I beg your pardon
I'm out of the way
A new conspiracy has taken my place
So over and over, I smell the decay
Believe what you want to - the cycle stays the same

In light of my ability to undermine
I walk away from apathy - I'm feeling fine
The agony of cynicism beckons me
It's everywhere
It's everyone
It's everything

Are you ready for the time of your life

Let's - pretend - we're not at the end
Pretend - that we have nothing left

Are you ready for the time of your life

Let's - pretend - we're not at the end
Pretend - that we have nothing left

    And yep, I agree with MAGGOT66 if that was meant to be a song meaning, don't give a fuck and live your life.

    Vendetta's basically my way of introducing myself back to the world, and looking around and going "wow". I never really try to take credit for stuff but there are a lot people out there who have been inspired by what we do, so this is my way of going " fair enough, but if youre not gonna keep up, then dont even try to run with me- Corey Taylor on this song
