Staring down demons, down at ____
Step-dad was a drunk and every weeknight was a battle
Rubbing elbows with the morning cattle, sacrifices
Living with the demons and all their surprises

I couldn't ask them to leave
I just invited them in
I can't believe what I just did
Shoved my face inside my pillow
Said Hail Mary's 'til I turned purple

It won't break me down
Won't leave me paralysed
I will spit fire on the pyres of the guilty
That relate but see right through me
I will spit fire

I guess you didn't get the note on the nightstand (Forgot to read it)
About setting the house on fire
Some other a witness to my offense just pissed on the evidence
Now everybody wants to know what the dark's hiding

One day I'll cash your death check
Buy the greatest and the respectable
That thought had crossed my mind
Oh yes, that thought had crossed my mind

I'll take my chances, walking on the wire
Not smart enough to keep my feet out of the fire
With the fear and the pain kept buried alive
This beast inside metastasises
Crawling deeper (Cut wide open)
Viciously and without warning

It won't break me down
Won't leave me paralysed
I will spit fire on the pyres of the guilty
That relate but see right through me
I will spit fire

When I've given up all I've got
When my guts are tied in knots

It won't break me down
Won't leave me paralysed
I will spit fire

One day I will cash your death check
Make believers of the impossible
And I might drop my excesses
The meanest and the unlikeable
But you won't break me down
You won't put out the fires that I spit out
