Let the demons watch Let the demons spy Don't let the demons speak Don't let the demons ride Oh silly girl, can't you see? All our demons are behind the wheel Let the demons knock Let the demons whine Don't let the demons sneak in Don't let the demons ride Oh silly girl, can't you see? All our demons are behind the wheel You won't break this chain I won't break this chain Now it's time to shut your mouth Now it's time to shut your mouth Now it's time to shut your mouth Now it's time to shut your mouth

In the winter of our discontent All your pretty flowers are dead Don't be sad because it's true Nothing in this life is pure Nothing is pure (Maybe we were wrong from the start) Sneaking in your dreams like a thief Wishing and hoping are the same shit Don't be sad because it's true Nothing in this life is pure Nothing is pure (Maybe we were wrong from the start) Maybe we were right from the start Right from the start Nothing is pure

You're gonna hold another hand You're gonna stare into other eyes You're gonna kiss other lips You're gonna whisper other lies There's nothing I can do To make things right There's nothing I can say To change your mind 'Cause a ghost haunts my nights A ghost that laughs and cries This ghost lives inside This ghost lives inside You're the ghost that haunts my nights A ghost that laughs and cries This ghost lives inside The ghost lives inside! But you're never gonna show your soul Again, tonight You've changed, right We're haunting each other! I'm gonna grasp another hand I'm gonna glare at other eyes I'm gonna bite other lips I'm gonna live another lie There's nothing you can do To make things right There's nothing you can say To convince my mind 'Cause a ghost haunts your nights A ghost that laughs and cries That ghost lives inside That ghost lives inside I'm the ghost that haunts your nights A ghost that laughs and cries That ghost lives inside The ghost lives inside! But you're never gonna show your soul Again, tonight You've changed, right You're never gonna show your soul To the one who holds you tight We're haunting each other!

I think I'm sliding through the passions Like I was sliding through your hair I can see the lover crying This devotion they share I'm smelling their sweat I'm smelling their lies But like the lovers do I pretend that I'm alive Oh, what I've become Tell me what I've become Well, I'm a rep — I'm a reptile I'm a reptile now I think I'm sliding through the passions Like I was sliding through your hair I can see the lovers smiling All the illusions they share I'm smelling their sweat I'm smelling their lies And like chameleons do I pretend that I can hide Oh, what I've become Tell me what I've become Well, I'm a rep — I'm a reptile I'm a reptile now I'm sneaking and I'm sliding I'm sneaking and I'm sliding I'm sneaking and sliding I'm sneaking and sliding Tell me what I've become Well, I'm a rep — I'm a reptile I'm a rep — I'm a reptile Well, I'm a snake I'm a reptile I'm a reptile now

Let me put a dagger Into your heart And drink All your tears Let me face the sun With a new kind of fear 'Cause I don't know What sweetness is True beauty attacks! True beauty destroys! Let me put a dagger Into your heart Then drink All my tears Let me face the sky With a new kind of fear 'Cause I don't know What love is True beauty attacks! True beauty destroys! It's the smell of the bullet It's the taste of the bullet It's the sweet taste of the bullet Well, it's the smell of the bullet True beauty attacks! True beauty destroys!

You may think that I've forgotten All the pain All the fights All the nonsense Honey, if you could only know How it feels to lay down With these ghosts on my side I'll bleed and I'll smile Smile 'Cause I am truly sorry, love Spring won't ever let you go I am truly sorry, love Spring won't ever let you go Away You may think that I've ignored All the bites All the screams All the scratches Honey, if you could only know How it feels to lay down With these demons inside I'll bleed and I'll smile Smile 'Cause I am truly sorry, love Spring won't ever let you go I am truly sorry, love Spring won't ever let you go Away I could swear that I was true But I don't really need to

I think we're all caged In the shadow of time Surrounded by people With big forced smiles It's a rat race In which the rats all die The inescapable end That laughs and then cries Nobody cares About how it feels like To be trapped inside your head! I think we're all stuck In the gears of time Still shaking our hands And pretending to shine It's a rat race In which the rats all die The ineluctable end That's wearing a smile Nobody cares About how it feels like To be trapped inside your head! I don't know you anymore I don't know you anymore Can you tell me what we're fighting for Can you tell me what we're fighting for What the hell are we fighting for? Please, remind me what we're fighting for Nobody cares About how it feels like To be trapped inside your head!

I know I've never known Who protects whom? Who watches over whom? Who protects whom? I know I've never known I know I'll never know The rays of the sun Are the pillows she needs The dust on the floor Dances as she breathes And I I like to watch her so I like to think she knows Freyja can you lick my wounds? Freyja can you heal my wounds? Scared as the first time She wanders through my room Big eyes catching spirits All the humans ignore And I I love to watch her so I like to think she knows Freyja can you lick my wounds? Freyja can you heal my wounds? Who protects whom? Who watches over whom? Who protects whom? I guess I've always known I think I've always known I think I've always known Freyja can you lick my wounds? Freyja can you heal my wounds? Can you talk to her?

These dancing flames are gathering I can't go on like this anymore And Mr. Cohen keeps singing To all my demons, taming them all "Ain't no cure, ain't no cure There ain't no cure for love" after all It's all blood and sweat - ha! I can't go on like this anymore And in your mind Everything seems so nice In black and white Nobody's wrong or right Face everything and rise We'll rise! These killing thoughts are whirling I can't go on like this anymore And Steven Patrick's singing To all my demons, facing them all "Why don't you, why don't you Why don't you find out for yourself" after all? Still hiding and seeking I can't go on like this anymore And in my mind Everything seemed so nice In black and white No more 'run-and-hide' Face everything and rise We'll rise!

(For Christopher Lee) Demons twisting Spirits swinging On the shores of Summerisle Haunting dreams Chasing fears It's a ritual I can't abide I'm burning like the Wicker Man I'm burning like the Wicker Man Demons twisting Spirits swinging They keep on torturing my mind Devouring dreams Collecting tears It's a ritual I can't abide I'm burning like the Wicker Man I'm burning like the Wicker Man (Sing, cuckoo, sing) All these demons dancing inside All these demons keep me alive All these demons screaming inside I think that all these demons keep me alive I'm burning like the Wicker Man I'm burning like the Wicker Man All these demons dancing inside All these demons keep me alive All these demons screaming inside I think that all these demons keep me alive

Do you remember when your eyes Used to catch my lies? Can you still remember when your eyes Used to catch my lies? (OK...) Now my hands are tied And I don't want to bow my head again Now my hands are tied No, I don't want to bow my head again! The clock is laughing at my face The clock is ticking in my veins Here I am, with nothing to lose (Again...)
