well this life ain't so simple babe
when your playing alone
and this demons intentions
are to chase you with a lonley parade
so I'll try to make this simple babe
cause your light could burn out
once you have some conception
of what consists of a lonely parade

what's that you say?
oh it's the devil on stilts
a man with a temper
with a vengeance he kills
a snake full of venom
that you just can't resist
do you think you'll work out?

well your friends ain't so friendly babe
put a lock on your cage
and you're tourin' with peril
a tall handsome rebel
with a dangerous smile
and they'll hand you some evil babe
they'll say give this a try
and you'll jump on the wagon
with a rusty old dragon in this lonley parade

what's that you say?
oh it's the devil on stilts
a man with a temper
with a vengeance he kills
a snake full of venom
that you just can't resist
and just hold on
a girl swingin' around
with a blade that don't miss
an archer with arrows
that sting like a kiss
a clown that'll haunt you
put a knife in your back
do you think you'll work out?

well I know what you're thinkin'
your blood doesn't lie
you're tellin' yourself
this will be the last time
but this old dusty mirror
is callin' your name
who's in control now
is it you my darlin'?

oh it's the devil on stilts
a man with a temper
with a vengeance he kills
a snake full of venom
that you just can't resist
and just hold on
a girl swingin' around
with a blade that don't miss
an archer with arrows
that sting like a kiss
a clown that'll haunt you
put a knife in your back
I don't think you'll work out
oh....
