A crashing pandemonium filled your heart with dread Run, run, scream and cry. Run for your life Your burning skin your burning eyes, the ringing in your ears The sky broke wide and let upon the world a burning sphere Run, run, scream and cry. Run for your life Run, run, scream and cry. Run for your life Run for your life Run for your life Run for your life

Don't you know that things were better when they were bad? You showed your hand, you shouldn't have Listen and you'll hear the voices of the damned They hadn't planned, on our demands Trust me you'll come around, you'll come around and put your money down That's where we'll pin you down, we'll pin you down and sell you by the pound (chorus) Don’t call up what you can’t put down Better them, better them, better them than us Let me be the first to say you're not allowed Scream and shout, you're still left out I could pull some strings if you just say it aloud Say it aloud, say it aloud We'll never come around, come around so put your money down Guilty of being proud so go on back to your hole in the ground (chorus) Don’t call up what you can’t put down Better them, better them, better them than us Don’t call up what you can’t put down Better them, better them, better them than us

Say that you lost me Say that I'm long gone out at sea Say what you want to They won't believe it coming from me Remember when I told you so A thousand million years ago It's better for both of us If you pretend that you know (chorus) Die on a sea of straight faces Dine on the feast Say we have history Doesn't it feel like it's true I will repay you For all of the favors I withdrew Remember when I told you so A thousand million years ago It's better for both of us If you pretend that you know (chorus) Die on a sea of straight faces Dine on the feast Paint all of your dead, face them towards the sun All tears shall be shed, when the work is done (chorus) Die on a sea of straight faces Dine on the feast

A long time ago, far away and small Turned tail and ran away from it all Cut in the line with no delay Forked tongues and fangs showed me the way (chorus) What is the price? How low must I go? Save me a page in your fiend folio Burned by breath, tempered by flame Pardoned from death, free from blame (chorus) What is the price? How low must I go? Save me a page in your fiend folio You're imposters, you're all monsters, you're not through I'm in debt to you, I'll risk death for you, I'll snap to Will it ever end, we were never friends, i want out You won't let me go, I won't ever know, there's no doubt A short while ago, bruised up and proud Nailed to the wall, screaming so loud Through broke teeth and jaw, still hear me say Forked tongues and fangs showed me the way

I wanna find you in the morning when you are fast asleep I wanna creep up and sneak up and rearrange all your things I wanna run all the hot water down the kitchen sink And laugh out when the freezing water makes you shriek (chorus) I wanna do a thousand things I never thought I'd do In hopes that one of them could put you through What I have felt for you I wanna change up your watch so you look like a fool And tie all your pretty shoes with knots you can't undo (chorus) I wanna do a thousand things I never thought I'd do In hopes that one of them could put you through What I have felt for you

When do I get to see when you are the one I seek? Is it time or consequence or simply just part of the dance? In my dreams I’m at your side, but in other ones I fly Away from all the frames of time and I’ve forgotten what is mine And I do love the way that you make every day And I do love the way that you keep it all at bay All the questions I can’t answer all my thoughts become fettered And I cannot tell what’s urgency your words become nothing to me

Can you tell me why it’s so hard for me to try I won’t claw and I won’t fight I'll just keep the watch all night How many years it’s been how many ‘til it’s you again (chorus) Like the weight of water these are things you cannot change Count your beads and hold your breath, life as we know it rearranged Some they say it’s in your head that this someday you can shed But if gold has turned to gray what then will they have to say? (chorus) Like the weight of water these are things you cannot change Count your beads and hold your breath, life as we know it rearranged Tally up the consequence but it still doesn't make sense

Pharaoh, Pharaoh Swallowed an arrow Now that it settled Pot meet kettle Once you walked on petals Now you're entombed in metal A long night to tomorrow Darkened by sorrow Would it help? They couldn't know When they pulled back their longbows?

I think I might've met your evil twin It seemed like he was walking in your skin But he did lots of things you'd never do Even though he looked a lot like you He drove drunk and swerved from lane to lane He broke all my stuff and called me names He left me out crying in the cold He knew all my secrets, and he told. But you could never break my heart with lies You can always look me in the eyes You'd never let someone do me so wrong But when he appears you're always gone...

Hey you, cast your best spell out from your hell Don't look, don't look, don't look Hey you, did you think you wouldn't sink? Don’t look at me, I can't set you free Don't look, don't look, don't look Don't look, don't look, don't look Fill your head full of dread ‘til you’re dead All this time, the longest climb, devil’s time You will learn, you will burn, when you return Don't look, don't look, don't look Don't look, don't look, don't look All this time, the longest climb, devil’s time You will learn, you will burn, when you return
