Empty Hand

lyrics

Well I've been fed by an empty hand so I bite it anyway
Your blessing comes from cursing lips when you walk away
Dissent was birthed from your tongue you try to break me but I fight
If there's one thing that I've learned don't feed the hand that bites you

I hear you say that I'm not good enough
And your mind's been made up
So I drink this filthy cup
And pride crumbles to dust

Well I've been fed by an empty hand so I bite it anyway
Your blessing comes from cursing lips when you walk away
Dissent was birthed from your tongue you try to break me but I fight
If there's one thing that I've learned don't feed the hand that bites you

I believe that deceit is your tool
Your game has changing rules
I know the man who follows you
Walks behind a fool

Well I've been fed by an empty hand so I bite it anyway
Your blessing comes from cursing lips when you walk away
Dissent was birthed from your tongue you try to break me but I fight
If there's one thing that I've learned don't feed the hand that bites

You came here knocking on my door
But I don't want to play your game no more
Wish I had a dollar for every time
You came here and stripped away my pride

Well I've been fed by an empty hand so I bite it anyway
Your blessing comes from cursing lips when you walk away
Dissent was birthed from your tongue you try to break me but I fight
If there's one thing that I've learned don't feed the hand that bite's you
