Mastodon – The Czar lyrics

Don't stay; run away
He has ordered assassination
Don't stay; run away
The henchmen are gathered and waiting
Don't stay; run away
Your role as usurper is found out
Don't stay; run away
Tsarina has warned of the danger

It's your own fault
That is what we wanted
It's your own fault
This is where we lay

By the light of the moon
You must escape into the deep black of the night
Fight the devil inside
Enemies poison deep within my second sight
Wasting valuable time

Ride the tides of blood
Beauties sudden hand
Shattered crown
Stretching arms up high
We're on our way now
Leave the Czar to die

Spiraling up through the crack in the sky
Leaving material world behind
I see your face in constellations
The martyr is ending his life for mine

    "There is only one mistake in those lyrics which is it is not ''Leave the Czar to die'' it is ''Leaving Tsar to die'' but other then that it is good"
    Sorry man, but you are wrong, it is "Leave the Czar to die" You should listen to the song some more. He definately isn't pronouncing the 't' sound in Tzar, and also the band theirselves are spelling it Czar. Says so right here on my cd.
    But what I did find wrong with these lyrics, which is different from my cd version. The lyrics written here, "That is what we wanted" are in fact, "This is what we wanted" on the retail cd version. No big deal, just a slight mistake.
