don’t tread on me lyrics – 311

before you’re pointing at me
there is a possibility
you better turn that thing around
nothing’s come easily
so don’t you tread on me
’cause i will knock you down

some days it seems it’s not worth it
the fight in me is all gone
and i’m not trying to be perfect
but just get one d*mn thing done
before i lose control
i pick myself off the floor

before you’re pointing at me
there is a possibility
you better turn that thing around
nothing’s come easily
so don’t you tread on me
’cause i will knock you down

never come a day that i’ll solve you
consequently i could never leave you
in the shadow of those looming battleships
i love our canoe
i’m ready for the falls
and the still waters we will find are truth

oh there’s a clock in my head
and despite what it said
another one on the wall
they don’t agree at all
and there’s a schism in me
and despite what you see
you might see me as calm
but i go off like a bomb

before you’re pointing at me
there is a possibility
you better turn that thing around
nothing’s come easily
so don’t you tread on me
’cause i will knock you down

whoa
oh in the comfort of strangers
you don’t see the danger
of just letting it flow
this i know

before you’re pointing at me
there is a possibility
you better turn that thing around
nothing’s come easily
so don’t you tread on me
’cause i will knock you down
