[What track is this thing on?
oh, I found it, never mind]

As you’re sitting in the stairwell with your hands behind your back
Wondering how you’ll make a difference
When you’re handling the deck
Remember there’s no graceful way to go after an easy target

You may think they’ve hurt your feelings
But you know how to spot a fake
You can throw-down with the best of them
You won’t make that mistake
Remember there’s no graceful way to go after an easy target

Who says it’s right?
Who says it’s wrong?
I’m full to light
You’re holding a smoking gun

For your mother it’s all forgiveness
But it’s harder to forget
We all bleed when we are burned
We will bleed until we’re dead
We will show my teeth to anyone at every sign of danger

I don’t take on any fight that can’t be fixed right from the start
And I won’t lay down with two people who’ve been fighting from the heart
But I will show my teeth to anyone that I’m no easy target

Who says it’s right
Who says it’s wrong
I’m full to light
You’re holding a smoking gun

As you’re sitting in the stairwell
With your hands behind your back
Spin around and let them free
Life is nothing but a dance
Choose your words carefully
Never become an easy target
