Reckoning lyrics

Alanis Morissette

Hey, hey, little wanderer
You walked the fields with all the fences down
You never knew the scent of the predator
You didn't know the house was on fire
And so you walked, as you should
While they preyed on all you ached for
And they pounced, as they would
While the guards were away
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Hey, hey, you murderers
You got away while they claim I am a liar
Why aren't the gods and heroes all around me?
And everyone's turning their eyes to the ground
And so, you strike, while it's hot
While the barricades are broken
You attacked, at your will
While all the locks are frayed
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

Hey, hey, you denier
Finally everyone is gathering 'round me
Now that we all know better, you'll be haunted
I hope you enjoy these drawings in your jail
And so, oh woah, oh woah
Brace, brace yourself
For this reckoning day
I was once, at a loss
Now I stand at the gate
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah, ooh-woah
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah, ooh-woah
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah, ooh-woah
