The devil and god are knocking at my door.
I thought I had your word
That a father dies before his son.
Now the reaper and his men are marching your way.
Straight to hell.

All that you taught me to be.
Was a moper, a dreamer, that only refused to dream.
Oh save it please.
My voice is peaking through your speakers and
I'm speaking just to show you the way.

How could you...
Shelter me out?
I'm much older now
You're a chemical fiend.
You shatter like a beaker
When I only want to show you the way

The architect the creator.
I'll build my way out of your demise.
These dreams are my castles,
Not the walls you built up around me.

Oh, when I look at my watch and I know
Time is gold it
Can't be pawned and it can't be sold now.
You're running out of time.
Better relapse and rewind.
Crucify your addiction so you can cross this line.
Nothing can save you.
From the fate that awaits you, no, no.

Disregard the signals.
Disregard the smoke.
Father don't believe them
Just let them fucking choke

Now we lay you down to sleep
I pray his hands
Your soul to reap
And if I die before you wake
Then I've lost a bet and for fucks sake when
All your cards are on the table
Pray the floor is still in stable
And dance your life away

Your true colors are starting to get loud
So loud that it hurts my ears
Have fun praying to your grey god now
This...

War don't determine who's right
This war just determines who's left standing tonight
Stop handing me lights
I can see what you are in the dark just fine
I'm not blind
I'm bending the blinds
Peaking through to get a glimpse of your anguishing life
You're hiding like a vampire here comes the strife
This won't hurt me
Cause I get a thrill from the bite

So place
Your bets
Cause through my eyes
You'll reap what you sow

    As stated by tyler carter in one of their interviews (ben ferris, keyboardist, was there too :) that the song is about a father and his son. The father was in and out of prison throughout most of the sons life, and finally the son desides to do something with his life and becomes pretty famous- the father is suddenly very interersted in what he does and he (of course) wants to be a part of the sons life. Obviously the son says no (i would too) and he wishes the father's death. Before, i thought it was about something similar, but of course i dont remember! By the way, if woe is me recently (orr ever!!! ) changed your life in a positive way then go ahead and start saying hoot hoot (or whatever it is you say)
