So you think you're a tough guy?
Beating on the weak
That sting in your knuckles echoed by a life time
Is what you create
An artist of despair
Trying to hide behind the Earth
Thunder strikes and shakes the core

So you think you're a tough guy?
With words so sharp they make the eyes bleed
Using your servant tongue poison ready at the tip
Lash out against their neck and back
Silent screams beg you to, "please stop"
Yet Typhon rages on

So you think you’re a tough guy?
Bragging about your right
Only because others do not put up a fight
Then the darkness in your soul
In justice I will reap
Back under the mountain you will shrink

So you still think you’re a tough guy?
