AM I ONLY WHAT I DID TODAY

Patty robs a bank wielding a military assault-rifle and crosses the point of no return             

If common sense could be more common

Then none of us would ever stray

Mistakes we all make - tell me

Am I only what I did today

 

The code of conduct can be blurry

When order falls to disarray

If you know this then please tell me

Am I only what I did today

 

Am I only what I did today

 

 (This is Tania! Patricia Hearst!)

 

Only what I did today

Only what I did today

Who am I who am I who am I… today

 

If hindsight gives us twenty-twenty

And errors are the human plague

Stuck with my regrets of mine

Am I only what I did today

 

Am I only what I did today

 

(Down on the floor, motherfuckers!)

 

Only what I did today

Only what I did today

Who am I who am I who am I… today

 

            Brav'ry is a noble virtue

            Yet where blade meets flesh

            It’s not enough

            So be careful

            Not to avenge a wrong

            By being equally unjust

 

The slippery slope is a staircase

With rotted rails and planks decayed

Misstep by misstep, tell me

Am I only what I did today

 

Act 1 - Scene 19 -
00:00 / 00:00

            Forgiveness given can be godly

            Yet to err is not divine

            Some sins will never wash away

            And judgment waits in all of your tomorrows

            Where debts like these are dearly paid

 

Am I only what I did today

Only what I did today

Only what I did today

Who am I who am I who am I… today

 

Across some lines sometimes

There’s no going back

No second chance no getaway

At least that’s what they tell me

Am I only what I did today

 

            I am a bank teller

            I am a record store manager

            I am a housewife

            I am an armed guard

            I am an innocent victim

 

I am an urban guerilla
