They’re going out to meet inside an empty house
To hatch a plan to run me out of town
They’ll come when I sleep

They’ll circle the house
Put cyanide into the water pipes
Wait till I walk out fall onto my knees
To surround me

Then they’ll drive me out
To the wasteland
To leave me for the wolves
To eat my face

We’ll sit and shiver the maggots eat out my eyelids and and my ears
We’ll sit and stare as the maggots eat out my eyelids and and my ears

They’ll laugh about it to my horror
When my body’s rotten and hollow
And the lights are finished on time
Nothing left except for my bones

    General Commenti don't know about some of these lyrics. i am fairly certain Chris says "to surround me," and not "to some family."

    either way, this song is incredible.

    General Commentjust a few corrections i noticed...

    its "warehouse" instead of just "house"
    definitely "to surround me"
    "we'll sit and stare as the maggots eat out my eyelids and my ears"
    "when the rats are finished, i'm gone"

    still not sure about the "to my horror" part...it doesnt quite sound like that. i guess we'll know next week.

    General CommentThis is a great song, however I think this is more accurate

    They're all going out to meet inside an empty warehouse
    To hatch a plan to run me out of town
    They'll come when I sleep

    They'll circle the house
    Put cyanide into the water pipes
    Wait till I walk out fall onto my knees
    To surround me

    Then they'll drive me out
    To the wasteland
    To leave me for the wolves
    To eat my face

    They'll sit and stare as the maggots eat out my eyelids and my ears
    They'll sit and stare as the maggots eat out my eyelids and my ears

    They'll laugh about it to my horror
    When my body's rotten and hollow
    And the lights are finished on time
    Nothing left except for my bones

    General Commentthis song is so great, the breakdown at the end sounds like very old Saves The Day, like the stuff from Ups and Downs, but 10 years more mature and better and done perfectly
