Don't come closer, 'cos it ain't safe here,
Just turn around now and walk away
I've gotta tell you, there are no rules here,
Sometimes I wonder, what goes on there,
Behind those eyes

When a promise is broken, and no one trusts you,
Young ones crying with their heads in their hands,
When you talk about saving, the souls of the faithful,
You can't help thinking you've got blood on your hands
From a Cross of Thorns

Tongues of fire always talking, wasted words that ring in my ears
We're still waiting, losing patience, will all the lies of, 400 years
I've got to tell you, there are no rules here,
Sometimes I wonder, what goes on there,
Behind those eyes

We gave you yesterday, and now you want to-day,
Oh, from the hands of death we take our daily bread,
Now all we do is choke, and the words that you once spoke, fade away
Look at what you've done, oh, it's a Cross of Thorns

Take away, this Cross of Thorns, look at what you've done,
It's a Cross of Thorns, Cross of Thorns
When a promise is broken, and no one trusts you,
You've got blood on your hands, from a Cross of Thorns
