lyrics

This looks bad
You can blame that on my dear old deadbeat dad
But I’m not mad
Until the arrow that I’ve notched becomes my last

One more shot to break this carny from his cage
Even a low-life like me can break free and save the day

So I’ll stay on target
Cuz that’s all I know how to do
As long as I’m next to you

This looks bad
But the quivering is all I’ve ever had
Like some nomad
Or a ronin dressed in black to hide the past
It never lasts
So I’m giving it the only shot I have

Draw the bow back, breathe, a moment of control
Once it flies, you never know

So I’ll stay on target
Cuz that’s all I know how to do
Stay on target
While I’m fighting my way through
Stay on target
Cuz that’s all I know how to do
As long as I’m next to you
As long as I'm next to you

Not like this
When the silence sings, my sight’s my only bliss
I won’t miss
Because I’m going out in style with my greatest hits

I’m no Giant Man, but I won’t give up the fight
Until my violet violence takes flight

So I’ll stay on target
Cuz that’s all I know how to do
Stay on target
While I’m fighting my way through
Stay on target
Cuz that’s all I know how to do
As long as I’m next to you
As long as I'm next to you
