Bullet With Butterfly Wings Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The world is a vampire, sent to drain
Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
And what do I get, for my pain?
Betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
Verse 2
Even though I know--I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold-like old job
Verse 3
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Verse 4
Now I'm naked, nothing but an animal
But can you fake it, for just one more show?
And what do you want? I want to change
And what have you got?
When you feel the same
Verse 5
Even though I know--I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold-like old job
Verse 6
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Verse 7
Tell me I'm the only one, tell me there's no other one
Jesus was an only son
Verse 8
Tell me I'm the chosen one
Jesus was an only son for you
Verse 9
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Verse 10
Tell me I'm the only one, tell me there's no other one
Jesus was an only son
Verse 11
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
