Well I've got a new wound to lick
My plate is empty but my spoon is poised
You know that there is iron in your words
Your words of death, I tried to bluff
But all it did was raise the stakes

That's not what I came for
I'm no kind of savior, that's not what I'm here for
Your destiny's chosen, it is what you think it is

Across the canyon you can hear the call
Like a suffragette for an empire that's crumbling down
That you once ruled, but now don't have
A shoulder to lean upon, what if I gave you mine?

That's not what I came for
I'm no kind of savior, that's not what I'm here for
Your destiny's chosen, it is what you think it is

As if being flesh and blood was not enough
It feels like you just have pierced my expiring heart
With a crimson gleam, like diamonds
They pour out their poison glaze
Javelins in an empty sky

That's not what I came for
I'm no kind of savior and it's not what you'd swear it was
Your destiny's chosen, it is what you think it is
