  • When the sky is gray
    And the moon is hate
    I'll be down to get you
    Roots of earth will shake

    Sinister purpose
    Knockin' at your door
    Come on, take my hand

    Burn away the goodness
    You and I remain

    Did you see the last war?
    Well, here I am again

    Sinister purpose
    Knockin' at your door
    Come on, take my hand

    I can set you free
    Make you rich and wise
    We can live forever
    Look into my eyes

    Sinister purpose
    Knockin' at your door
    Come on, take my hand
