Gypsy has eyes that hide the secrets no one sees
Easy, you smile until she brings you to your knees

Stick around till you get the truth
Taste the blood when you get your proof
Oh yeah
Find that you never understood
Gave it all but it's bad for good
Oh yeah

And I know this life makes fools of wise men, thieves and kings
When we lose we live our lives like puppets on a string

Close your eyes and you lose your soul
Do your time but there's no parole from here
No chance when the end is near
Hear the words that you never thought you'd hear
Life whispers in your ear

It's a long way down
When the ground starts coming
I tried to tell you
But you would not listen
It's a long way when you fall from the top

Build it all on a bed of lies
Standing tall till you realize you're here
Look away but you can't pretend
Gonna pray for a way when the end is near
Life whispers in your ear

It's a long way down
When the ground starts coming
I tried to tell you
But you would not listen
It's a long way, such a long, long way

It's a long way down
When the ground starts coming
I tried to tell you
But you would not listen
It's a long way, such a long, long way

Long way down
Long way down
When you fall from the top
