​Pieces Of Eight

This song is by Abraxas and appears on the demo Outlook: Not So Good (2007).

Alone in this place at night
With no one there she's lonely
He stalks his prey with insanity
Plaguing his eyes
Creeping through the door
Those that sleep will be no more
As he watches his victims
Under the cover of the night

Shaken we hear
How he butchers, why he's feared
Awake in their minds
Scared to the bone
It's the thought of being the next victim

Save me
As he gets to work on his prey
Take me away
As he cuts them into pieces of eight
Wont let that happen to me
Consumed by fear at the stories that they teach
But can't get away from its grip
Hearing how he butchers them
Into pieces of eight

Fear is in the air
He draws his blade, the end is near
The thought of retribution
Doesn't trouble this twisted mind
As he chops through flesh and bone
Reality is gone in a world of his own
As madness takes control
He slays them in their home

Shaken we hear
How he butchers, why he's feared
Invading their minds
Scared to the bone
It's the thought of being the next victim

Save me
As he gets to work on his prey
Take me away
As he cuts them into pieces of eight
Wont let that happen to me
Consumed by fear at the stories that they teach
But can't get away from its grip
Hearing how he butchers them
Into pieces of eight

Strange how we can never seem to erase the thoughts from our minds

Victims
Too young to understand
Blessed
With the innocence of youth
Time will tell
But the stories they will dwell
All I know is
I know that I've done my time
These thoughts have consumed my whole mind

These things that were passed on to me
I know I can't believe
But as time goes by
I know that nothing will escape
Like the pieces of eight
Like the pieces of eight

Wont let that happen to me
Consumed by fear at the stories that they teach
But can't get away from its grip
Hearing how he butchers them
Into pieces of eight
