Jon Foreman – Revenge lyrics

I'm the failure, I'm everyone's fool
And I'm losing my cool at the end

I'm the loser, my number's come up
I've been hung up with thoughts of
Revenge, revenge, revenge

I watched you from my terminal view
As you struggled to rise to your end

I laughed hard at the insults we threw
As the weight of the world found
Revenge, revenge, revenge

The world hung upside down
I drew first blood, I drew first blood

With my hate for a crown
I drew first blood, I drew first blood

I watched heaven dying today
And I'm gonna die here tonight

I'm a villain, I deserve to be dead
I've been hung up for wreckin' my life
Revenge, revenge

So I stopped for a moment
To look at the sun dying a day
That's when the irony hit me

That this was revenge
That love had descended
And stolen our pain away

We consumed heaven's Son
I drew first blood, I drew first blood

My hate was undone
I drew first blood, I drew first blood

Here's a story
How a thief had been robbed
How a murder had stolen my rage

Think of me, Lord, I'm a few breaths away
As my lungs finally rip from the cage
Revenge, revenge
