Backdating Karma

from by Bats & Battleships



They say that a man can redeem himself
Showing your bare skin, I think they are right
They say that a man can be forgiven
Your hand slides down, I think they are right
Clearly I am the luckiest man alive
Karma's paying out and mine dates back, but

They say that a man can forget himself
With this twice gone I guess they are right
I say to myself if I was anymore weak
I would not know my own reflection

They say that a man can be forsaken
With your back turned sharply
I know they are right
They say that a man cam be forgotten
But after years and you still scream my name to all those who will listen

Spit out more venom
Pass on the cold shoulder once more
And take away my validity
Opportunity strikes in friends and weaker minds

Raise up those fangs
And drive them deep into the backs of those you control
Try your best to take me down again

What makes a man one of the same?
