"Marionettes" as written by Bert Lee, E Harris Weston and R P Weston....
At the sound of the bell, you will fall fast asleep
Let the sound of my voice help you never repeat
All the things that you've done, all the people you've harmed
Just surrender sweet sweetness, surrender

When the curtains go crash and the knees start to bend
When the filaments burst and there's no light
To lead you to anywhere useful, you're severed there
All skin on skin, left severed and sucking the wind

Marionettes, how they dangle
On strings and they never forget
I can't take anymore, I'm over it now
I can't take anymore, anymore

And the cameras collapse, you will faint in respect
Let the flash of your past help you never forget
All the things that you're not
All the people you've failed to remember, return to sender

When there's nowhere but black and there's sharks creeping in
When you're withered and torn from the weakest of things
Like the loose leaf parade of the rain on the electrical wires
Such electrical lives that we lead
I promise that I'll never leave you alone

Marionettes, how they dangle
On strings and they never forget
I can't take anymore, I'm over it now
I can't take anymore, anymore

Never tasted better when you tried to let go
Never tasted better when you tried to let go
Never tasted better when you tried to let go
Never tasted better when you tried to let, tried to let go
Never tasted better when you tried to let

Marionettes, how they dangle
On strings and they never forget
I can't take anymore, I'm over it now
I can't take anymore, anymore

Marionettes, dangle on strings
Marionettes, you're everything
Marionettes, dangle on strings
Marionettes, you're everything

    General Commentnot too bad
    once again i find the chorus to be the weakest part of the song
    overall i think everything else is great, and the chorus is okay
    but the song is without a doubt amazing, and this band will be huge!
