LyricsEdit

The chorus is unofficial and fan-transcribed.

It happens every night
I watch my world ignite
But there's no waking from this nightmare
The stage is always set
The place I can't forget
The hidden eyes, that I can feel there

My eyes are open wide
I'm racing to her side
There's nothing that I won't do for her
But this is not a dream
My mind repeats the scene
I can't forget it and it's torture

That was before
But not anymore
I've left it behind
As much as I lost
Once I'm across I'll find

I've found the strength to grow so much more
A whisper to a roar
No more crying
It's time for me to soar

Feel like I'm finally unbroken
Feel like I'm back from the dead
My strength back and confidence growing
Out of my way
Cause I'm Armed and Ready (Armed and Ready)
Ready (Armed and Ready)
I'm ready (Armed and Ready)
Feeling pretty (Armed and Ready)

Remember all too well
My time of living hell
The night my enemy would conquer
But now I've been set free
Lived through the tragedy
You'll wish you'd killed me; now I'm stronger!

I am the golden one
Who burns just like the sun
Next time we meet is your disaster
I'll bring the punishment
Your song will be lament
Revenge, my happy ever after

My misery
My agony
Has taught me to fly
The pain I went through
Left me with a new
War cry!

I'll live my life like every day's the last
No living in the past
Best day's ever
I'm never looking back

Feel like I'm finally unbroken
Feel like I'm back from the dead
My strength back and confidence growing
Out of my way
Cause I'm Armed and Ready (Armed and Ready)
Ready (Armed and Ready)
I'm ready (Armed and Ready)
Feeling pretty (Armed and Ready)

Call me sweetheart and I'll tear you apart
Just call me, "sir"
Try to resist once you meet my new fist
Bye-bye

Just look at the fire in my eyes
And bring my strawberry sunrise
It was you who began it
Now you're saying: "God damn it."
Next time, there's no compromise

Feel like I'm finally unbroken
Oh, now I'm back from the dead
Strength back, confidence growing
Out of my way
Cause I'm Armed and Ready (Armed and Ready)
Ready (Armed and Ready)
I'm ready (Armed and Ready)
Feeling pretty armed and ready
