A Bitter Aftertaste

So I’ve been making decisions that even I don’t approve of
But I am living in a world full of wreckage that just don’t let up
And I ain’t denying that reasons exist why I shouldn’t give up
But I’m tired of trying when I’m the only one who gives a fuck

And I know that I’m no angel
But I’m working on my wings

Oh there’s a bitter aftertaste when I swallow down my pride
But look a little closer at my face and you’ll see I will survive
And as for weakness, there’s no place, baby, I haven’t tried
But if there were a lack of aftertaste, I just wouldn’t feel alive

I keep on searching for answers to questions that aren’t even there
But if I stop looking, I’d be so afraid that I might have time to spare
And that means danger, but I don’t know if I can keep on losing air
When I am riding on three worn tires and a heart that doesn’t care

And I know that I’m no soldier
But I’m brandishing my sword

Oh there’s a bitter aftertaste when I swallow down my pride
But look a little closer at my face and you’ll see I will survive
And as for weakness, there’s no place, baby, I haven’t tried
But if there were a lack of aftertaste, I just wouldn’t feel alive

I will follow in their footsteps
And I’ll hold my head up to the sky
May not have too much to show just yet
But with honor, we all live and die

And I know that I’m no savior
But I’m demanding to be free

Oh there’s a bitter aftertaste when I swallow down my pride
But look a little closer at my face and you’ll see I will survive
And as for weakness, there’s no place, baby, I haven’t tried
But if there were a lack of aftertaste, I just wouldn’t feel alive
