Missiles screaming through the sky
bombs are raining fire tonight
foundations crumbling as you cry
your world is being torn tonight

Surrounded by destruction
by pain, by suffering
Your lack (of love and compassion)
has brought you to this tragedy

Retaliation
...you should have seen this coming
Retaliation
...when you throw the first punch, you can't pass the blame
Retaliation
...there is always a price to pay
Retaliation
...if you can't take the heat don't ignite the flame

You saw my "sweet and gentle" self,
the days i wiped your tears away
you had my love and compassion...
but that trust has been betrayed

Don't say i never warned you,
Don't say i never tried.
this is action, and reaction.
this is my other side.

Retaliation
...you should have seen this coming
Retaliation
...when you fire the first shot, you can't pass the blame
Retaliation
...there is always a price to pay
Retaliation
...if you can't take the heat don't ignite the flame
