You have forsaken
All the love you've taken
Sleepin' on a razor
There's nowhere left to fall
Your body's aching
Every bone is breakin'
Nothin' seems to shake it
It just keeps holdin' on

Your soul is able
Death is all you cradle
Sleepin' on the nails
There's nowhere left to fall
You have admired
Every man desires
Everyone is king
When there's no one left to pawn

There is no peace here
War is never cheap dear
Love will never meet here
It just gets sold for parts
You cannot fight it
All the world denies it
Open up your eyelids
Let your demons run

I thread the needle through
You beat the devil's tattoo
I thread the needle through
You beat the devil's tattoo
I thread the needle through
You beat the devil's tattoo
I thread the needle through
You beat the devil's tattoo

I bled the needle through
You beat the devil's tattoo
I thread the needle through
You beat the devil's tattoo
I bled the needle through
You beat the devil's tattoo
I thread the needle through
You beat the devil's tattoo
