Listen to the song and complete the lyrics

I'm gonna fight them off
A seven nation army couldn't
They're gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back

And I'm talking to myself at night
Because I can't forget
through my mind
Behind a cigarette

And the message coming from my eyes
Says ""

Don't want to hear about it
Every single one's got a story
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the Hounds of Hell

And if I catch it
I'm gonna serve it to you
And that ain't what you want to hear
But that's what I'll do

And the feeling coming from my bones
Says ""

I'm going to Wichita
this opera forevermore
I'm gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore

And I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding
Right before the Lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
And I will think

And the stains coming from my blood
Tell me ""
