Gauntlet lyrics

Well, this will eat me inside if I decide to let it
But there's no limit to how far I might go to get it
Just tell me when and where
And I'm as good as there
I know that this tendency won't get me very far

Oh, if I had known
that was how it'd go
I would not have come
all this way

I knew that I would regret this the moment I did it
It's quite a distance to travel through just in three minutes
Once you got me here
I was as good as dead
I guess that some things don't change no matter where we are

Oh, if I had known
that that was how it'd go
I would not have come
all this way
