I live by the streetlights
I try but my feet don't listen to me
To walk in a straight line
Possibly an impossibility
I move with the shadows
I eat from an empty plate
Looking for the arrows
On the signs to decide my fate
But on every road I ever walk along
The birds sing a siren song

Over the horizon
Fires in the sky turn the sea to red
Scorpio rising
Time to get your sermon out of my head
I shake with the devil
I don't need you anymore
He's wiser and older
Feels so much better than before
I find that on every road I ever walk along
The birds sing a siren song
Yes on every road I ever walk along
The birds sing a siren song

You taught me everything I ever knew
You gave me what you thought to be the truth
But now I want to learn it back to you
Believe me, believe me

I live by the streetlights
I try but my hips don't listen to me
To walk in a straight line
Possibly an impossibility
I move with the shadows
I eat from an empty plate
Looking for the arrows
On the signs to decide my fate
But on every road I ever walk along
The birds sing a siren song
Yes on every road I ever walk along
The birds sing a siren song
