Beasts and demons good is God
Broken soldier the devil been sold
You left me in my mothers womb
Teenage burn-out womb to tomb
My mother never enjoyed you lot
She warned me of your ghostly blast
Twisted spider, poisoned web
You took my childhood before i had

Beasts and demons mystical
You showed me nature's miracle
Prayed beneath below a sky
Darkest ravens feathers
But in the end your children die
They'll meet you in heaven
Your soul it can never die
Even if you're poison
Watch watch wacth watch watch them walk away
Watch watch wacth watch watch them walk away

So the moral of the story is
Magic doesn't save your kids
They needed love to grow up tall
Like the purple mountains
You held my hand in a shoppping mall
This is all i've counted
I'm broken, blue, a bastard
Now every man's a bastard
A black and a crystal crucifix
These shoes are big they almost fit
I gaze down at my mama's feet
I guess i got my mama's feet
All new babes i forget your name
You named the boy your namesake
Unicorn, tongue of a snake
Was my little sister's fate
Watch watch watch watch watch them walk away
Watch watch watch watch watch them walk away

Was this all a big mistake
Now i got my legacy
To live and die and to create
I suppose i should thank you
You never were the violent type
Only with your menials
I used to hold your coffee cup
You taught me fundamentals
Of all the evils of the world
And only you can save it
Mother's a witch with her black hair
And only you could save her
Your first born son the chosen one
What happened to messiah
Jesus always your right hand
What happened to messiah
Watch watch watch watch watch them walk away
Watch watch watch watch watch them walk away
Watch watch watch watch watch them walk away
We watch watch we watch watch watch our fathers walk away
We watch watch we watch watch watch our fathers walk away

    General Commenti love this song, the lyrics are amazing :)
    "you left me in my mother womb" would have to be my favorite line from the song

    but i think instead of "you taught me from the mentors", its should be "you taught me fundamentals"

    General CommentFew things off. Firstly before the second chorus should be "Was my little sister's fate." Not "what's"

    Also - "only with your mentors
    i used to hold your coffee cup
    you taught me from the mentors"

    I think it's...

    "Only with your mentals
    I used to hold your coffee cup
    You taught me fundamentals."
