Machine Head – All Falls Down lyrics

Anticipating salivating intoxicating
How i've been waiting
To gently soak in
Your dream that's broken
Caress my hands a
Round your throat when
I choke the last gasp of air out of you

I'll mesmerize you
Hypnotize you
Paralyze you
My snake eyes blind you
My gentle tickle
My tender prickle
The back of your neck
I stab icicles

My sweetest grin will pull you in
Behind that grin a razor teeth smile
Under your bed
Inside your head
I am the monster in wait
Walk run
I'm the fear you've become
Pray hope
Before it's your
Downfall it all falls down

I patronize you
Victimize you
My false pretenses
Endear me to you
I'm psychopathic
Believe everything
You've heard about me

Ate you alive since you were a child
That's when the monster first appeared to you
So know my name
What is my name
My name is fear and i'm you
Walk run
I'm the fear you've become
Pray hope
Before it's your
Downfall it all falls down

With faith i crawl
In sadness i fear what i've become
Cause after all
I'm acting
Pretend my smile on
Before the fall
The pain washes over
Hold on hold on
Survive survive

(walk) walk (run) run
I'm the fear you've become
(pain) fight (back) back
Before it's your
Downfall it all falls
Downfall it all falls down
