With this tattoo you make a promise
Of who you are and what you think
And this will be your binding contract
Written down in blood and ink

She had a life to live
The day she left home
She vowed no surrender
No company drone

She wrote it down in crimson
She wrote it down in black
She wrote it down so deep
She's never gonna take it back

Make your clear and solemn vow
Before the age of compromise
Write it here and write it now
Always right before your eyes

This tattoo
This tattoo will hold your vision
Always looking back at you
This tattoo, this tattoo, this tattoo

It isn't on the surface
Doesn't need to be
She wrote it down so deep
Only she can see

She doesn't have to show it
It didn't made for show
She spells it out in action
It's written on her soul

Make your clear and solemn vow
Before the age of compromise
Write it here and write it now
Always right before your eyes

This tattoo
This tattoo will hold your vision
Always looking back at you
This tattoo, this tattoo, this tattoo
