The devil and God are knocking at my door
I thought I had your word that a father dies before his son
Now the reaper and his men are marching away straight to hell 

All that you taught me to be
was a moper, a dreamer that only refused to dream
Oh save it please, my voice is peaking through your speakers
and I’m speaking just to show you the way
How could you shelter me out? I’m much older now
You’re a chemical fiend, you shatter like a beaker
when I only want to show you the way

The architect, the creator
I’ll build my way out of your demise
These dreams are my castles, not the walls you built up around me

Oh when I look at my watch and I know
time is gold; it can’t be pawned and it can’t be sold
Now you’re running out of time, better relapse and rewind
Crucify your addiction so you can cross this line
Nothing can save you from the fate that awaits you

Disregard the signals, disregard the smoke
Father don’t believe them, just let them fucking choke

Now we lay you down to sleep
I pray His hands your soul to reap
and if I die before you wake,
then I’ve lost a bet, and for fucks sake
When all your cards are on the table
pray the floor is still in stable and dance your life away

Your true colors are starting to get loud
So loud that it hurts my ears
Have fun praying to your grey god
Now this war don’t determine who’s right,
this war just determines who’s left standing tonight

Stop handing me lights,
I can see what you are in the dark just fine
I’m not blind, I’m bending the blinds
peaking through to get a glimpse of your anguishing life
You’re hiding like a vampire, here comes the strife
This won’t hurt me cause I get a thrill from the bite

So place your bets cause through my eyes you’ll reap what you sew
