Blanket - Lyrics

If I kill one innocent person
To save 20 or more
Will I be a hero in your heaven
If I die to praise a lord?

I can perfect my Elvis Presley lip-curl
While I'm staring at the whole wide world
And I'm reporting to no one
Because the subversive is so much fun

I wonder what it's like killing non-combatants
There is no such thing as a surgical strike
Whatever happens, happens
Maybe it will happen tonight

If I kill one innocent person
To save 20 or more
Will I be a hero in your heaven
If I die to praise a lord?

Is this just a justification?
Does testosterone make you serious?
Did I just give myself instructions to go numb and be furious?

I wonder what it's like killing non-combatants
There is no such thing as a surgical strike
Whatever happens, happens
Maybe it will happen tonight

I'm about a quart low on milk of amnesia
It's getting harder to be martyr

I've got violence running hot
I've got violence running cold
Whatever happens, happens
What's your definition of...
I've got violence running hot
I've got violence running cold
Whatever happens, happens

What's your definition of innocence?

If I kill one innocent person
To save 20 or more
Will I be a hero in your heaven
If I die to praise a lord?
