"Get What You Want" as written by Jason Boesel, Stephen Michael Runion, Elizabeth Anne Berg, Alexander Greenwald and James B Valentine....
This is not a good idea
I know it isn't right
But I'm giving it my all
This is war so I'll fight

I'm not quite cut out for this
I don't stay mad for long
But my attacks are planned
Rockets poised so I'll launch them

If you can't get what you want
It's not always worth the trouble
You and I know
But if you stop
It's not giving up
To know you're wrong

How can I just take it back?
When my hands are all tied up
I'm looking for some symmetry
It's fucked
But I need some vindication of punishment
I know I'm playing God
But I remain fearless
I don't trust that they'll grant the charge

What you want is not always worth the trouble
You and I know
But if you stop
It's not giving up
To know you're wrong

If you can't get what you want
It's not always worth the trouble
You and I know
But if you stop
It's not giving up
To know you're wrong

What I want
Is not always worth the trouble
You and I know
So if I stop
It's not giving up
To know you're wrong
And I'm wrong
