Another day in this hollow land
Here every saint is a liar
Shadows call and they beckon you
So you dance in the fire

Breathing in the crystal love
That burns right through your soul
It leads you down the left-hand path
Before it takes control

You make your bed in the lies you've told
Retrace the lines that begin to show
You find yourself in that place so cold
Caught between the angel and the devil you know

Empty eyes that stare back at you
To see the future unfold
Promises of some better days
You bought the lies that they sold

Still the longing will bring you back
To this house built of pain
With open mouth you stare at the sky
Till you drown in the rain
