"Wrapped Around Your Finger (The Police cover)" as written by and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
You consider me the young apprentice
Caught between the Scylla and Charibdes
Hypnotized by you if I should linger
Staring at the ring around your finger

I have only come here seeking knowledge
Things they would not teach me of in college
I can see the destiny you sold
Turning into a shining band of gold

I'll be wrapped around your finger
I'll be wrapped around your
I'll be wrapped around your finger
I'll be wrapped around your

Mephistopheles is not your name
I know what you're up to just the same
I will listen hard to your tuition
You will see it come to it's fruition

I'll be wrapped around your finger
I'll be wrapped around your
I'll be wrapped around your finger
I'll be wrapped around your

Devil and the deep blue sea behind me
Vanish in the air you'll never find me
I will turn your face to alabaster
Then you'll find your servant is your master

Oh, you'll be wrapped around my finger
I'll be wrapped around your
You'll be wrapped around my finger
I'll be wrapped around your
You'll be wrapped around my finger
I'll be wrapped around your
You'll be wrapped around my finger
I'll be wrapped around your finger

    General CommentThis song is indeed a cover, but I think they chose to cover this song because Dallas(the vocals at the time) dedicated to his fiance, who died in his arms.

    But that's only what I think.

    General CommentThis would be an absolutely incredible song if Underoath had written it, but hearing the original first makes it sound a bit...lame. However, I think they've adapted it to their sound pretty well, and yeah, I agree with calamity on dallas' personal interpretation of the song.

    General CommentThat is so sad about Dallas' fiance.
    I definitely didn't know that.
    But yeah this song is really good.
    I haven't heard to original.
    Can someone fill me in about Dallas?
    I liked his work with underoath better than I like Spencer.
