In a vacant old park
I watched from the dark
The old church was on fire
I buried my lighter
So no one could tell I was runnin
God forgive me but he had it comin
She was barely fifteen
Midwest town sleepy scene
I was two grades above her
Completely in love with her
One look from those eyes I was done in
God forgive me but he had it comin
It was deadly crooked fangs
But outside a church-bell clangs
Well rise and fall, curtain call
Build around your heart a wall
Brick and stone both thick and tall
Build around your heart a wall
With my hand on her head
In a hospital bed
In the secrets she kept
That would lead to her death
Well the f*cker had took what he wanted
And I promised he'd get what was comin
But she never made a sound
When he pushed her to the ground
Well rise and fall, curtain call
Build around your heart a wall
Of brick and stone both thick and tall
Build around your heart a wall
I tried to keep breathin
As the last car was leavin
Drank myself courageous
Crept behind the stage
Towards the target for which I was gunnin
God forgive me but he had it comin
It was deadly crooked fangs
But outside a church-bell clangs
Well rise and fall, curtain call
Build around your heart a wall
Brick and stone both thick and tall
Build around your heart a wall
Build around your heart a wall
