lyrics

These rooms are always changing
but, these cells the look the same
my cellmates come and they go
my sentence still remains
these rooms are always haunted
but I'm the only one who knows
I can't believe I'm back here
as a rat I saw no ghosts

these canon balls hit their mark
as these walls come tumbling down
I've kind of always wanted
to see this side of town
I scratch another line into my cell wall
before I make my great escape
I spent so many years here thinking this place would be my grave

So, I wait for the moment
and I'd die to feel alive
and I wonder what this world looks like
through someone else's eys
I wonder what I'm thinking
and what in the hell am I doing here
I'm a walking, talking consequence
I'm the rat of the year
I'll be damned

It's been almost a year now
as I look into this mirror
sometimes I'll get to thinking
maybe this could be my year
but I know that they're still out there
the ghosts I never saw
and I know they won't stop haunting me
until I give them what they want

Still, I wait for the moment
and I'd die to feel alive
and I wonder what this world looks like
through someone else's eys
I wonder what I'm thinking
and what in the hell am I doing here
I'm a walking, talking consequence
I'm the rat of the year
I'll be damned

yeah, i'll be damned

if I get caught
