I don't wanna say what I got on my mind
'Cause nothing tonight wants to come out on time
The truth is I'd rather sit out and unwind
Let somebody else tell their story this time
I wonder what happened to give me the right
To step on a platform and pick up a mic
And tell you the way to be living your life
'Cause all my credentials are lies

PRE-CHORUS:
You've had your say
Now take your seat
I know my place
You don't know me

CHORUS:
I'll probably end up in flames before the end of the night
Watch me burn in the fire, watch me bid you goodbye
Your words fall right off the page like they fall on deaf ears
You know that it's over, nothing left for you here

I waited too long letting people like you
Tell me what they want and what I shouldn't do
So mark me with words but you can't tie my hands
There's nothing I'll say to make you understand
I know who I am, I know where I'll end up
In flames and that's fine 'cause I'm finally fed up
Stick with what I started, don't care how it hurts
The loudest get shot at the worst

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

You know I'll never fold like you're the authority
I won't throw my hands up like you're the authority
You know I'll never fold like you're the authority
I won't throw my hands up like you're the authority

CHORUS

    My InterpretationI think it's about a person who has harmful habits and knows that...she/he knows that her/his attitude isn't right and that she/he will end up in flames but maybe he/she is tired of people who only make her/him noticed this without helping her/him..

    My InterpretationHonestly, I see this as a theme song for politicians. Y'know, the ones who promise all these things but then make up outrageous excuses as to why they can't keep their word.
