I'll take the position
You work by committee
I'll be pounce pony
Pony before the cart.
This ceremony

Who threw the crushing blow?
Why not me?
A punch toy volunteer
Is all you want to hear
Romantically, you'd martyr me
It is my strength, my destiny

Who threw the crushing blow?
Why not me?
Gentlemen mark your opponents
Pick the weakest as strategic
Meet your enemy.
A scapegoat falls to climb.
Deliberately mine
Who cast the final stone?
Someone has to take the fall
Had consequence chose differently
My actions make me beautiful
