Lyrics:

Verse 1

You're gonna kick me now
You're gonna push me down
You're gonna take my books
and tear the pages out
You're gonna call me names
You're gonna spread some news
You're gonna threaten me
With things you're gonna do

(prechorus)
I could go to the teacher and stir up sparks
I could act indifferent to your remarks
I could win you over with smarts and skill
But I'd rather like to kill

(chorus)
to kill you…

with kindness!
I'm gonna rob you of your blindness
I'm gonna strip away your judgement and your shame
I'm gonna shock you with forgiveness
I'm gonna make your soul my business
'til you cry for mercy
cry out to be changed

Your loss is my gain

Verse 2
Another day is past
I'm back at home at last
Safe behind my door
Safe behind my desk
Until my cellphone ring
Reveals another thing
That you can do to me
You hurt me virtually

(prechorus)
Open up this link says your text to me
Open up my pain to the facebook screen
A page dedicated, to your hate
Dedicated, to seal your fate

(bridge)

You shall not kill is what the Good Book says
Violence only violence begets
A man enraged is a man condemned
But The Law I won't neglect

(chorus)
when I will kill you…

with kindness!
I'm gonna rob you of your blindness
I'm gonna strip away your judgement and your shame
I'm gonna shock you with forgiveness
I'm gonna make your soul my business
'til you cry for mercy
cry out to be changed

Your loss is my gain

VERSE 3
I'm at the shopping mall
I found the perfect gift
I wrap it up with bows
Say that I understand
Say that I wish you well
and though we're not the same
Your goodness I can tell

(prechorus)

May you become the best of who you're meant to be
and I'll go on my way, and do what's right for me
and whatever ills make you act this way
Just confirm my need to say

(chorus)
I need to kill you…

with kindness!
I'm gonna rob you of your blindness
I'm gonna strip away your judgement and your shame
I'm gonna shock you with forgiveness
I'm gonna make your soul my business
'til you cry for mercy
cry out to be changed

Your loss is my gain

DOOT DOOT DOOT etc
