Over there in the shadows, hangin' out in the corner of my mind Stringing up the gallows, waiting for me to cross that line That man's dangerous as hell, a threat to himself, If he got out there'd be hell to pay. And that's why, my dark side, don't ever see the light of day.
I've slowed down on the whiskey, 'cause there always comes a point When I've had too many, tear down every wall in that joint I've got a wife, I've got a son, that don't know half the stuff I've done, And I pray that's the way that it stays And that's why, my dark side, don't ever see the light of day
You can blame it on the rebel raisin', you can blame it on the South You can blame it on the words I try to keep here in my mouth It takes a lot to start me up, but once that hammer drops You don't wanna be the one that tries to make me stop
All you thugs and ugly mugs dealing drugs and making noise You can kill each other all you want but if you touch my little boy You'll be beggin' for this bullet will be the last thing that you see Before I let my dark side... Come out to play.
