    When They Come for Me (Live at Madison Square Garden) Lyrics 05:21
    I used the deadwood to make the fire rise
    The blood of innocence burning in the skies
    I filled my cup with the rising of the sea
    And poured it out in an ocean of debris
    Oh
    
    I’m swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    What I don’t deserve
    
    We held our breath when the clouds began to form
    But you were lost in the beating of the storm
    And in the end we were made to be apart
    Like separate chambers of the human heart
    No
    
    I’m swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    It’s in the blackened bones / of bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    What I don’t deserve
    
    I’m swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    The blame is mine alone / for bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    What I don’t deserve
    
    I used the deadwood to make the fire rise
    The blood of innocence burning in the skies
    I’m stuck in this bed you made
    Alone with a sinking feeling
    I saw through the words you said
    To the secrets you’ve been keeping
    It’s written upon your face
    All the lies how they cut so deeply
    You can’t get enough you take
    And take and take and never say
    
    No / you’ve gotta get it inside
    You push it back down / You push it back down
    No / you’ll never get it inside
    Push it back down
    Black out
    Blood in your eye
    
    You say that it’s not your fault
    And swear that I am mistaken
    You said it’s not what it seems
    No remorse for the trust you’re breaking
    You run but then back you fall
    Suffocate in the mess you’re making
    You can’t get enough you take
    And take and take and take and take
    Fuck it
    Are you listening?
    
    No / you’ve gotta get it inside
    You push it back down / You push it back down
    No / you’ll never get it inside
    Push it back down / You push it back down
    No / you’ve gotta get it inside
    You push it back down / You push it back down
    No / you’ll never get it inside
    Push it back down
    Black out
    Blood in your eye
    
    Floating down / as colors fill the light
    We look up from the ground / in fields of paperwhite
    And floating up / you pass us in the night
    A future gazing out / a past to overwrite
    So come down / far below
    We’ve been waiting to collect the things you know
    Come down / far below
    We’ve been waiting to collect what you’ve let go
    
    Come down
    Oh
    I am not / a pattern to be followed
    The pill that I’m on is a tough one to swallow
    I’m not a criminal / not a role model
    Not a born leader I’m a tough act to follow
    I am not / the fortune and the fame
    Nor the same person telling you to forfeit the game
    I came in the ring like a dog on a chain
    And I found out the underbelly’s sicker than it seems
    And it seems ugly / but it can get worse
    ‘Cause even a blueprint is a gift and a curse
    ‘Cause once you got a theory of how the thing works
    Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first
    And I’m not a robot
    I’m not a monkey
    I will not dance even if the beat’s funky
    Opposite of lazy / far from a punk
    Ya’ll ought to stop talking start trying to catch up motherfucker
    And all the people say
    
    Lauryn said money change a situation
    Big said it increase the complication
    Kane said don’t step / I ain’t the one
    Chuck said that uzi weigh a motherfuckin’ ton
    And I’m just a student of the game that they taught me
    Rockin’ every stage in every place that it brought me
    I’m awfully underrated / but came here to correct it
    And so it ain’t mistaken I’ma state it for the record /
    I am / the opposite of wack / opposite of weak
    Opposite of slack / synonym of heat
    Synonym of crack / closest to a peak
    Far from a punk
    Ya’ll ought to stop talking / start trying to catch up motherfucker
    And all the people say
    
    Oh / When they come for me
    Come for me
    I’ll be gone
