Lyrics

Shatter my bones
Crush my erogenous zones
Drink up this blood that I cough
They'll have to stretcher me off
Rip out my innards
And make me watch as I burn up

But let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me, oh
I'll forgive what you've done
I'll rest in peace

Pardonnez-moi[1]
Switch off your safety mode
Launch in to kill or explode
Don't suffer no fools no more
Just one more jellyfish
Looking for someone to sting

But let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me, oh
I'll forgive what you've done
I'll rest in peace

I say, there's only room for one of us to stay

They got Cape Canaveral helping me to navigate this
Won't get caught up between no Scylla and Charybdis
Every Care Bear got a special symbol on his tummy
I accept this mission even if it's gonna kill me
Beat me, hurt me, bruise me
Hate me 'til I'm woozy
This is quite the epic journey

Drink up this blood that I cough
They'll have to stretcher me off

But let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me
Oh, I'll forgive what you've done
I'll rest in peace
Let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me
Oh, I forgive what you've done
I'll rest in peace
