I would have done it anyway

We're gonna free you all
And make you all one of us
(Bullshit)
We're gonna find everyone
And make them pay for this
(Bullshit)
Go ahead have some more
It won't hurt you
(Bullshit)
I know that it hurt before
But I swear this time it won't

Chorus (2x):
Even knowing what I know now
I would have done it anyway
Black and blue and red from you still
I would have done it anyway

If you close your eyes
It will all go away
(Bullshit)
Keep your head up man
Tomorrow's a better day
(Bullshit)
Bad things never happen
To good people
(Bullshit)
We treat everyone here
Like they were an equal

Repeat Chorus (2x)

I would have done it anyway
I would have done it anyway
I would have done it anyway
I would have done it...

We'll do better next time
If you give another chance
(Bullshit)
I understand you now
And I know exactly what you want
(Bullshit)
Try this for now
You'll like it just as much
(Bullshit)
Do everything we say
And we won't leave you fucked

I would have done it anyway

Repeat Chorus (2x)

    General CommentTo me, ELIAS is taking all the things we hear people say every day, and saying that their all bullshit! People hurt you, and say they won't do it again, but they do! People say that we're all treated equal, but we aren't! People say that they'll find those who hurt us, and they'll serve up justice, but they don't!! Great song, with great lyrics, and all true! I can say that from personal experience! And the chorus is just saying, irregardless of what you tell me, I'm gonna do it anyway! You can give me all the advice you feel is needed, but I'm not gonna listen! I'm gonna do things my way, or no way at all!

    General CommentI guess he's saying he's bruised and bleeding (black & blue & red) from the way people treat him, and whatever it is he's "done," he would have done it even if he knew the things people told him were lies.

    As in, he's done something in retaliation to the words of comfort people give him, but now he realizes they were lies; he still would have done it.
