lyrics

This is not my home
It's where I'm locked away
It's in my design
It's not my circuitry
This is not who I am

You'll never see me
behind this killer's face
These aren't my hands
These needles take their place
Was this all part of the plan


Would you believe this isn't me
That what you get isn't what you see

I'm not a bad guy
I'm just designed that way
No matter what I try
I can't help but hurt those close to me
And I can't see a way out this time

Wait, get to the point

It's hard to blame them
I even scare myself
Built to kill seems to
be detrimental to my health
I guess I should have known

He's on his way down

I hear him just above
I guess it's his job
When pushing comes to shove
At least I won't be alone

Would you believe this isn't me
That what you get isn't what you see

Deep underground, ten miles down
A man stands below the city he will destroy,
Stop
How can I retract these claws
Those are your hands
You can't take back the damage you cause
How can I take off this mask
That is your face
You can't remove the fear you cast
How can I turn off this hatred that fills my eyes
You can't shut down where your path lies
When can I stop being bad
That is who you are
If that's who I am
Then I'll fight who I am!

I'm not a bad guy
I'm just designed that way
No matter what I try
I can't help but hurt those close to me
And now I see a way out this time
