lyrics

I'm not the dashing rebel of the kind you may have seen
Played out upon the stage or captured on the silver screen
I've turned against my country and I've left my family
A life that's filled with danger is all that remains for me

It's too late for turning back
The cards are dealt, the deck is stacked
There's no way to turn back time
And there ain't no happy ending at the end of the line

I'm not a helpless princess or a damsel in distress
I'm not waiting for some hero to come save me, I confess
Cos I've been trapped my whole life, and now I've set myself free
I'm looking for some action, and a man who's damned like me

It's too late for turning back
The cards are dealt, the deck is stacked
There's no way to turn back time
And there ain't no happy ending at the end of the line

Well, if we can't be good folk, then
Let's be the worst they've ever seen
Let's start a riot in every town
Til we are 6 feet underground
