Bullet in the blood

This song was created for Game of Bands round 248 : "Odd Times And No Rhymes VI"

Lyrics:

Life cornered me with pity
Knocked me right down to my knees
Knocked me down but never out
I’ll keep standing where I fall

Sorrow pushed me to the ropes
Bruised a battered, broken mind
Dealt me out a dozen scars
I gave back a dozen more

This is my final fight song

Breaking free of ties that bind
Battle scars and bloody smile
No one needs to rescue me
I’m the hero, I’m the cure

Got a bullet in the blood
In a chamber of my heart

My black eyes suffer blindness
Burning skin is slick with sweat
A new battle every day
Broken still I rise again

Life one day is gonna win
What begins must end, it’s true
Fight until the final curtain
Give back every bit I get

This is my final fight song

Breaking free of ties that bind
Battle scars and bloody smile
No one needs to rescue me
I’m the hero, I’m the cure

And when the fight is over
And the final bell it rings
I’ll fall down frail and fractured
But the vict’ry will be mine

Breaking free of ties that bind
Battle scars and bloody smile
No one needs to rescue me
I’m the hero, I’m the cure

Breaking free of ties that bind
Battle scars and bloody smile
No one needs to rescue me
I’m the hero, I’m the cure

Got a bullet in the blood
In a chamber of my heart
[Exit]
