"Play Dead" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
You´re the killer and the victim
you ain´t got no alibi and you cannot escape
you´re just another person
sending out the invitation to your funeral

here´s to the end, to giving up and giving in
you did it all to yourself
start at the end, wash the blood from your hands
and start it all over again

once again

spit into the wishing well
save the coins for the drinks in hell
you gotta play the hand your dealt
or just roll over and play dead

you need a resolution
you´re only fighting symptoms not the disease
so break the cages that surround you
and admit to yourself that you can´t find your peace

here´s to the end, to giving up and giving in
you did it all to yourself
start at the end, wash the blood from your hands
and start it all over again

once again

spit into the wishing well
save the coins for the drinks in hell
you gotta play the hand your dealt
or just roll over and play dead

so wash the blood from your hands and do it
again, again
start it all over again and then
start at the end

once again

so wash the blood from your hands and do it
again, again
start it all over again and then
start at the end

spit into the wishing well
save the coins for the drinks in hell
everybody, place your bets
will you roll over and play dead?

so wash the blood from your hands and do it
again, again.
