Chorus

Everything I ever used to be,

Bows down to you,

Worthy adversary,

Retrovirus,

Pieces of us.

Verse 1

You've taken over my cells

And made them a living hell.

You've polluted my DNA

And taken me so far away

From everything I ever used to be.

Nothing is now left of me.

Chorus

Everything I ever used to be,

Bows down to you,

Worthy adversary,

Retrovirus,

Pieces of us.

Verse 2

You've built your own twisted home

In each of my cell's genome.

You've done transcription in reverse

And given me my fatal scars

That wrecked everything I ever used to be.

I'm over, why can't you see?

Chorus

Everything I ever used to be,

Bows down to you,

Worthy adversary,

Retrovirus,

Pieces of us.

Bridge

You've taken over my cells

And made them a living hell.

(The end is coming, farewell)

You've polluted my DNA

And taken me so far away.

(The tombstone bears my name today.)

You've built your own twisted home

In each of my cell's genome.

(All roads lead to fallen Rome.)

You've done transcription in reverse

And given me my fatal scars,

Retrovirus,

Retrovirus,

Retrovirus,

Pieces of us that won't pardon me.

Chorus

Everything I ever used to be,

Bows down to you,

Worthy adversary,

Retrovirus,

Pieces of us.
