LIGHTS OUTS!
i can see the evil in your eyes
fuck yeah!
i can see the evil in your smile
fuck you!
all i know is tonight is the night
i gotta play this by the book
so take a stab at my broken heart
fuck yeah!
you can even have the first damn shot.
fuck you!
cos you know i shoot to kill

i gotta get this off my chest.
round and round and round we go
if its perfect then its just fine by me
you picked the wrong war.
you picked the wrong WAR!

RIOT! RIOT!
IM A RIOT? YOURE A FUCKING RIOT!
IM A RIOT? YOURE A RIOT!

yeah!
im just a good guy in a bad, bad town
im just a bad boy with a good reputation.

oh oh oh oh ohhhh
you gotta reap what you sew
WRONG WAR!
you gotta reap what you sew!
WRONG WAR!

. . .


I can see a war, burning in your eyes
I've whorred myself for less than this,
You gotta sh-sh-shake on it.
We will never fall, never stand aside
I've whorred myself for less than this,
You gotta sh-sh-shake on it.

We've come to far,
You'll never take our souls alive
I've come for you
We will, WE WILL SURVIVE!
I've come so far,
So take your poison dressed in wine
I've come for you
We will, WE WILL SURVIVE!

I've seen your kind before, feeding off the lies
I've whorred myself for less than this,
You gotta sh-sh-shake on it.
You stumble and you fall, you never realize
I've whorred myself for less than this,
You gotta sh-sh-shake on it.

We've come to far,
You'll never take our souls alive
I've come for you
We will, WE WILL SURVIVE!
I've come so far,
So take your poison dressed in wine
I've come for you
We will, WE WILL SURVIVE!

Pray for a quick death!
Pray for a quick end!

We've come too far,
WE WILL SURVIVE! WE WILL SURVIVE!

We've come to far,
You'll never take our souls alive
I've come for you
We will, WE WILL SURVIVE!
I've come so far,
So take your poison dressed in wine
I've come for you
We will, WE WILL SURVIVE!

I've come so far, I've come for you
WE WILL, WE WILL SURVIVE!

Bring it back again
Always and forever
Bring it back again
FOREVER!

. . .


Do I say goodbye?
Shut the door and close your eyes
Or wait until tomorrow?
We let this burn a little longer, until we grow stronger
Until we fall apart

Say goodbye, and take both of my hands
You've danced your last dance
Why don't you dance it for us?
Take this dance as our last goodbye
You've danced your last dance
Why don't you dance it for us?

Woah-oh-oh, woah-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh, woah-oh-oh

It's been too long, and you're never coming back
It's no good saying sorry
We let this burn a little longer, until we grow stronger
Until we fall apart

Say goodbye, and take both of my hands
You've danced your last dance
Why don't you dance it for us?
Take this dance as our last goodbye
You've danced your last dance
Why don't you dance it for us?

I fall, I'm not for you
I'm not for you
I'm not for you

Say your goodbyes (Dance for us, dance for us)
Say your goodbyes (Dance for us, dance for us)
Say your goodbyes (Dance for us, dance for us)
Say your goodbyes (Dance for us, dance for us now!)

Say goodnight, when you close your eyes
Say goodbye, when you say goodnight
Say goodnight, when you close your eyes
Say goodbye, when you say goodbye

Whoa! Yeah!
Whoa! Yeah!
Whoa! Yeah!
Yeah! Whoa!

"How about you and your friends, versus me and the revolution?"

Take your lies, and walk through the door
Run for, run for your life
And take all that you can
Take your lies, and walk through the door
Run for, run for your life
And take all that you can

I die, you cry, we lie every time
I die, you cry, we lie every time
I die, you cry, we lie every time (We can take it far too far)
I die, you cry, we lie every time (And far too long)

So take your lies, and walk through the door
Run for, run for your life
And take all that you can
Take your lies, and walk through the door
Run for, run for your life
And take all that you can

I die, you cry, we lie every time
I die, you cry, we lie every time
I die, you cry, we lie every time (We can take it far too far)
I die, you cry, we lie every fucking time (And far too long)

I'm not over you just yet
I'm not over you just yet
I'm not over you just yet
I'm not over you just yet
I'm not over you just yet
I'm not over you just yet

Run away, so we can let you go
Run away, so we don't have to know
(Don't run away)
Run away, so we can let you go
Run away, so we don't have to know
(Don't run away)
Run away, so we can let you go
Run away, so we don't have to know
(Don't run away)
Run away, so we can let you go
Run away, so we don't have to know
(Don't run away)
Run away, so we can let you go
Run away, so we don't have to know
(Don't run away)
Run away, so we can let you go
Run away

Run-a-way-now! (Run-a-way-now!)
Run-a-way-now! (Run-a-way-now!)
Run-a-way-now! (Run-a-way-now!)
Run-a-way-now! (Run-a-way-now!)

rain down, rain down
let it cut to the bone
rain down, rain down
just like my words to you
rain down, rain down
let these wounds never heal
rain down, rain down
and my heart always bleed

through the rain and tiers
your eyes hide from me
because they now see
truth in disbelief
so i take my knife
from your bleeding heart
turn it on myself
and i slit my throat

to bleed like you bleed
slowly drowning
to feel the rain
cut deep

to bleed like you bleed
slowly drowning
to feel the rain
cut deep

with this scar across my chest
i wont forget the day that i
toke the knife into my hands
and waved our lives good bye

rain down and wash us away

. . .


A thousand times I've waited
I've burned out
Flushed with hearts
I turn back after the fall
And we'll watch them burn

Ashes slip through your fingers
While you try to grasp what once was yours
But your cries fall on deaf ears
Play with matches and people burn

A thousand times I've waited
I've burned out
Flushed with hearts
I turn back after the fall
And we'll watch them burn

Yeah, we'll watch them burn
Yeah, we'll watch them burn
Yeah, we'll watch them burn

Why deal me a hand in this?
It's true, I could have stopped it
Was it even my place?
To stop the start of the end?

A thousand times I've waited
I've burned out
Flushed with hearts
I turn back after the fall
And we'll watch them burn

Watch them burn
Watch them burn
Watch them burn
Watch them burn
Watch them burn

(Watch them burn, watch them burn) I know how you feel
(Watch them burn, watch them burn) Broken and bruised
(Watch them burn, watch them burn) I know that you are
(Watch them burn, watch them burn) Cold and used

Yeah, we'll watch them burn
Yeah, we'll watch them burn
Yeah, we'll watch them burn

Yeah, we'll watch them burn
Yeah, we'll watch them burn
Yeah, we'll watch them... burn

I borrowed, i begged for, forgiveness
the taste of blood in my mouth, is telling me to stop and walk away, stop and walk away
but i dont think this thing will end not until one of us is dead, one of us is dead.
blow for blow i take it in
one last step, that extra mile

pull no punches, half hearted glances
look to kill, cos you wont see this chance again
pull no punches, half hearted glances
cos the day we quite is the day we die

the taste of blood in my mouth, is telling me to stop and walk away, stop and walk away
but i dont think this thing will end not until one of us is dead, one of us is dead.
one of us is dead.

the blood still left in my veins
drowns the sound around me
pushing harder
beating faster
i was the king and you were my queen

. . .
