You've been hiding out
For quite a while now,
Living off of people you know
Trying to raise a little money
To pay off all the monkeys
That you met inside the
Rabbit hole
You're takin' candy from the white witch
You're smokin' tea with Mama Kin
Well, there's a wolf outside
A brick house screaming;
"This time I'm gonna blow it in!"

Because a mind is a weapon
You see and it's got you on
Your hands and knees
Pull the trigger if you're gonna
We all know that you wanna
Count off 1, 2 (1, 2, 3)

[Chorus]
You better pray that there's
Another way out
You better pray that
Someones listening now
(That doesn't wanna watch you drown)
'Cause when you lie like
The devil himself
No angels gonna hear your
Cry for help!

I know you must really think
It's funny, you had everybody
Fooled in the end,
Well that's a little un-assuming
Considering that you knew me,
I'm the only one that called
You a friend

Because a mind is a weapon
You see but you're not
Gonna use it on me
Pull the trigger if you're gonna
We all know that you wanna
Count off 1, 2 (1, 2, 3)

[Chorus]
You better pray that there's
Another way out
You better pray that
Someones listening now
(That doesn't wanna watch you drown)
'Cause when you lie like
The devil himself
No angels gonna hear your
Cry for help!

Count off, 1, 2 (1, 2, 3)

[Chorus]
You better pray that there's
Another way out
You better pray that
Someones listening now
(That doesn't wanna watch you drown)
'Cause when you lie like
The devil himself
No angels gonna hear your
Cry for help!

For help [x3]

    I adore this song ... lol ... which is mostly all I want to say, since I think it is pretty obvious what it about, isn't it?
