"You Had It Coming (But This Time You're A Dead Man)" as written by Tim Brennan, Aaron Brown, Mark Palacz and Mark Sutor....
It's dead or alive
You'll give up or survive
These lungs weren't made for breathing

I can see it in your eyes
This time you're hardly breathing
But don't be alarmed girl
This time we don't go up for air
(I love it when you're nervous)
This time we don't go up for air
Your arson will keep us here

We'll find a way out
Cause it's about time
For you to follow
It's Dead or alive
You'll give up or survive
These lungs weren't made for breathing
And the lock on the door
keeps your head to the floor
As the flames dance up the walls
You start to feel the heat against your back

Find the hall
Make the call
Save the girl or let her fall to her creation
You will see
I'll turn the tables back around in this penitentiary
Find a nice Spot in this room where you can...

Dig yourself much deeper in
You’re giving up on getting out
When your hell begins to win
(This is exactly what you wanted)
This is the ending that you started
(Your attempt was so half hearted)
Are you listening?

We'll find a way out
It's down to every man for himself
Hey, cause it's about time
For you to follow me because you're

Dead I'm alive
You give up I survive
Your lungs gave up on breathing
And the lock on the door
Keeps your head to the floor
As the flames dance up the walls
You start to feel the heat against your back

Find the hall
Make the call
Save the girl or let her fall to her creation
You will see
I'll turn the tables back around in this penitentiary
Find a nice Spot in this room where you can...

**
DEMO:
You almost thought that you had won
Dead or alive
Is that what you had in mind
Call your bluff
Listen up
Close your eyes
I recommend you take my advice
**

Save your air
This room is like your lungs once were
Save your tears
Evacuation slim to none
The flicker of the lights through the thick of the smoke
(Save your air)
And now you wish you’d make it out
(Save your tears)

Find the hall
Make the call
Save the girl or let her fall to her creation
You will see
I'll turn the tables back around in this penitentiary
Find a nice Spot in this room where you can...
