"Tarantula" as written by Martin Young and Ian Robbins....
I'm living but I'm feeling numb.
Can see it in my stare.
I wear a mask so falsely numb and I don't know who I am.
Despite the worlds inside of me thwarting me away.
I've noticed in other eyes, time's closing in.
But when the thunder breaks it breaks for you and me.
Tarantula, tarantula, tarantula, tarantula.
The future's looking rather grim.
Strange black tide.
Decisions lie with stupid men.
Alone with my life.
That choking and the hype in me expecting me to fall.
But only if I'm threatened will the tables turn.
But when the thunder breaks it breaks for you and me.
Tarantula, tarantula, tarantula, tarantula
My world's under a sentence of death, I was born underground.
But when the pressure gets too much for me, I bite.

    General CommentThese lyrics are not totally correct and partially nonsensical.

    Here's what is really being sung:

    I'm living but I'm feeling numb, can see it in my stare
    I wear a mask so falsely [now], and I don't know who I am
    [This void that wells] inside of me, ??thwarting me away?? <--"thwarting me away" is incorrect but I don't know what is actually being sung
    I've noticed in other eyes, time's closing in

    But when the thunder breaks, it breaks for you and me
    Tarantula, tarantula, tarantula, tarantula

    The future's looking rather grim, strange black [time]
    Decisions lie with stupid men, alone with my life
    [They're choking and they're hyping me], expecting me to fall
    But only if I'm threatened will the tables turn

    But when the thunder breaks, it breaks for you and me
    Tarantula, tarantula, tarantula, tarantula

    My world's under a sentence of death, I was born [under clouds]
    But when the pressure gets too much for me, I bite

    General CommentThe line you are unsure of is:

    This void that wells inside of me is eroding me away
