Chorus

And you try to take a shot at me.

But now your cartridges are empty.

You're firing blanks, baby.

You're firing blanks, maybe,

Verse 1

Maybe you should have known I'd take your bullets out.

I'm finally tired of hearing my helpless shout

Echo throughout the empty chambers of my heart.

Bleeding and bruised, well, now I'm done being torn apart.

Chorus

And you try to take a shot at me.

But now your cartridges are empty.

You're firing blanks, baby.

You're firing blanks, maybe,

Verse 2

Maybe you should point your gun at your head instead,

Find out just how it feels to take a damn bullet.

But hey, it's so useless, you're not the type to learn.

You're so heartless, well, now I'm done being crashed and burned.

Chorus

And you try to take a shot at me.

But now your cartridges are empty.

You're firing blanks, baby.

You're firing blanks, maybe,

Bridge

Maybe I should tell you how this story ends.

You see, I used to be stupid, but I've made amends.

I know where my roads lead.

And they never lead to you,

Never again will I bleed.

Chorus

And you try to take a shot at me.

But now your cartridges are empty.

You're firing blanks, baby.

You're firing blanks, maybe,

You're firing blanks, baby.

You're firing blanks, baby.
