lyrics

Raised a heathen, I was left behind
They found me reaching in the darkness
And calling for a sign
They dragged me home and put me to bed
That night had opened my eyes

Don't fight the feeling of an afterlife
Don't be worried that the ceiling is the last thing you will see
We'll stir the blood and put it to boil
We shall be alright

These nights I hear it
A voice commanding me
Won't help to fear it
It will not let you free
And now my dearest
You have to let me leave
It floats on the breeze
These words they haunt me

Chase me darling or you'll be sorry
Now you're running out barefoot
Stagger through the alleyways
Now lost, you whimper and moan
Severed connections to home
You better start your search
Or this will cut you to the bone

I was a fighter
Though I carried a weight I could not bear
I tried to make it lighter
Convince myself it's the world that just ain't fair

They made an offer
I took a dive
I didn't do it for the money
I just needed a friend
And when they told me "kid, you done good."
You saw defeat in my eyes

These nights I hear it
A voice commanding me
Won't help to fear it
It will not let you free
And now my dearest
You have to let me leave
It floats on the breeze
These words they haunt me

Chase me darling or you'll be sorry
Now you're running out barefoot
Stagger through the alleyways
Now lost, you whimper and moan
Severed connections to home
You better start your search
Or this will cut you to the bone
