The Wise Man's Fear – Prayer Of The Prey lyrics

I will not compete this way
I refuse to run your race

She feeds off all of the anguish and wrath
Of those who could not escape from her grasp
All these obstructions are tangled round you

I will not compete this way
I refuse to run your race
Turn and run, escape while you can
You’re just a part of her master plan

You’ve heard the stories and still decided not to heed
She promised you she’d be everything that you need
She was an angel or at least that’s what you believed
But when you turned your back you knew that you were deceived

I won’t back down, I will hold my ground
You were the weight on top of my chest
Now that you’re gone I’ve got nothing left

You’ve heard the stories and still decided not to heed (you heard the stories)
She was an angel or at least that’s what you believed (you heard the stories)

Light fires thanks to your goodbyes
Let’s start but start without you
I thought you might have been better than this
But that ship has sailed and you will not be missed
