Scars

Verse 1
My scars they tell the story
Of some manic kind of glory
When the world was burning fire
And the sky was bleeding red

I welcomed the disorder
Drank the poison in the water
Never stopped to count my blessings
Let the demons in my head.

Chorus
These scars donít fade
I wouldnít have it any other way.
They said I had it made
But I could never keep the wolves at bay.

These scars donít lie
Theyíre as true as a lionís roar
They tried to crucify
You canít hurt me anymore

Verse 2
My scars are like a mistress
A reminder in the distance
Of a reckless institution
And a blazing rendezvous

I revelled in the madness
Left my honour on the canvas
Never stopped to count my blessing
Let the pain define the truth.

Chorus
These scars donít fade
I wouldnít have it any other way.
They said I had it made
But I could never keep the wolves at bay.

These scars donít lie
Theyíre as true as a lionís roar
They tried to crucify
You canít hurt me anymore

Bridge x 2
Every stich and every needle
All the jabs and searing pain
Would come to nothing if redemption was a lie.

Chorus x 2
These scars donít fade
I wouldnít have it any other way.
They said I had it made
But I could never keep the wolves at bay.

These scars donít lie
Theyíre as true as a lionís roar
They tried to crucify
You canít hurt me anymore
