CAN'T TAKE IT BACK

My fingers take the same shapes 
My teeth bite the same tongue 
I keep doing the same things 
When will I see enough blood? 

I can’t take it back 
Relive the past 
Rewrite the facts 
I can’t take it back 

My forehead’s built of bronze 
My neck is cast of iron 
Mentality made of flint 
Have I started enough fires? 

I can’t take it back 
Relive the past 
Rewrite the facts 
I can’t take it back 

I can’t take it back 
Like I pull in a breath 
I can’t take it back
