This is a free digital single, sir.


Verse 1:

I feel the birds of prey
Circling over me
Can’t see the light of day
Reaper watches distantly

Verse 2:

Feeling that shadow more frequently
Cannot escape what can’t be seen
I know that death is on to me (I know I know I know I know)
She spins the web but cuts me free


She spins the web but cuts me free
I know that death is on to me

End Verses:

I’m glad you think you’ve got it made
Just like a rat inside a maze
A talking parrot in a cage
the truth might hit you in your grave

too busy waiting for the end
make enemies but call them friends
Repackage it and sell again
Just give “the truth” a little bend

I wonder who I should believe
The mental cripple or the thieves?
from golden boy to demon seed
the fairy tale ended with me

A tired lie to start it all
no answer to an empty call
The house of cards begins to fall
Can’t hide behind those paper walls
