I was once a young boy
Never fled too far from home
Now I've lost my name
And misplaced my home
I retreat back to places
Where I am someone they love
Bright lights serving justice up from above

Everybody thinks they know my name
And where I've been
I've got news for you that'll turn your head
I'm not exactly who you think that I've been all along
Shut your fuckin' mouth and sing my song

I always knew I would be the one
To make you believe
(To make you believe)
In sleeping in castles with no guards
But all the pleasure it brings me

I flee from situations
When I know that I've done wrong
But face to face with faith
He strings me along
I'll shoot for the moon
So long as you raise your arms too
My marksmanship is perfect
My aim is true

Hitting targets
Marked their rage all over mother's glow
Smoking out the world atop my throne
I take the names of victims
That I've gunned down on my own
I please with love and ease
So I aim for gold

I always knew I would be the one
To make you believe
(To make you believe)
In sleeping in castles with no guards
But all the pleasure it brings me

I always knew I would be the one
To make you believe
In sleeping in castles with no guards
But all the pleasure it brings me [x2]

I was once a young boy
Never fled too far from home
Now I've lost my name
And I'm all alone
