BADGE OF HONOUR
Badge of honour no one sees
My sacred scar just me
Takes me back to a faded lie
Where a messed up kid fakes happy times
That wondrous day I said no
Gunned the steep forbidden road
Trike in flight pedals whirring
Legs splayed as wings, I’m burning

Badge of honour no one sees
My sacred scar just me
Badge of honour
Takes me back to a faded lie
Where a messed up kid fakes happy times
Badge of honour
Badge of honour

Boundless senseless innocence
Wild in my omnipotence
Flapping red rebellion cape
Flies me to my first escape
Chorus
When my life is sore
That hidden friendly scar
Is my badge to freedom
It’s there to remind me
Chorus
Badge of honour
My badge of honour
