Before it is too late, there is a passage
That is asking me to deny my fate
It is all, it is all
All that I can take, and in this state
The dark makes my heart race
And my eyes are made aware the moon is out of phase
And I will soon be there
Under the weight, oh, the back breaks
It is better to beware
When you saw my face, did you ever wonder
How long will it take for the taking under
Yeah, when you saw my face, did you ever wonder
Why I never ran from the thunder
Did you not see the animal under its skin
Did you not know it's the animal that always wins
Before it is too late, there is a passage
That is asking me to deny my fate
It is all, it is all
All that I can take
Under the weight, the back breaks
