Beat The Devil's Tattoo

Album: Beat The Devil's Tattoo (2010)
  • You have forsaken all the love you've taken
    Sleepin' on a razor there's nowhere left to fall
    Your body's aching, every bone is breakin'
    Nothin' seems to shake it, it just keeps holdin' on

    Ah
    Ah
    Ah
    Ah

    Your soul is able, death is all you cradle
    Sleepin' on the nails, there's nowhere left to fall
    You have admired, every man desires
    Everyone is king when there's no one left to pawn

    Ah
    Ah
    Ah
    Ah

    There is no peace here, war is never cheap dear
    Love will never meet here, it just gets sold for parts
    You cannot fight it, all the world denies it
    Open up your eyelids, let your demons run

    Ah
    Ah
    Ah
    Ah

    I thread the needle through, you beat the devil tattoo
    I thread the needle through, you beat the devil's tattoo
    I thread the needle through, you beat the devil tattoo
    I thread the needle through, you beat the devil's tattoo

    I bled the needle through, you beat the devil tattoo
    I thread the needle through, you beat the devil's tattoo
    I bled the needle through, you beat the devil tattoo
    I thread the needle through, you beat the devil's tattooWriter/s: Leah Shapiro, Peter Hayes, Robert Been
