Lyrics for Reckoning by Alanis Morissette:

Verse 1
Hey, hey, little wonder
You walked the fields with all the fences down
You never knew the scent of the predator
You didn't know the house was on fire

Chorus 1
And so you worked as you should
While they prey'd on all you ached for
And they pounced as they would
While the guards were away, oh

Verse 2
Hey, hey, you maurauders
You got away while they claim I'm a liar
Why aren't the gods and heroes all around me?
And everyone's turning their eyes to the ground

Chorus 2
And so you strike while it's hot
While the barricades are broken
You attacked at your will
While all the locks are frayed, oh

Verse 3
Hey, hey, you denier
Finally everyone is gathering 'round me
Now that we all know better, you'll be haunted
I hope you enjoy these drawings in your jail

Chorus 3
And so brace, brace yourself
For this reckoning day
I was once, at a loss
Now I stand at the gate, oh
