Eight Of Swords

Album: Spell Eater (2012)
  • Eight swords form a cage
    The sky is grey
    I'm tied and I am blind
    There is no escape

    The cards will tell the truth
    The laws of motion rule

    Eight of swords
    Trouble or trick
    Kill the heretic
    Eight of swords
    Devil's cards of sin
    Let the witches in

    My clothes are wet and torn
    I stand in waste
    These blades can set me free
    The fear keeps me enslaved

    Eight swords form a cage
    The sky is gray
    I'm tied and I am blind
    I don't want to escape

    The cards will tell the truth
    The laws of motion rule

    Eight of swords
    Trouble or trick
    Kill the heretic
    Eight of swords
    Devil's cards of sin
    Let the witches in

    These swords don't protect you
    They bind you more

    Eight of swords
    She said choose two
    Only one will do

    Let the witches in
    Let the witches in
    Let the witches in
    Let the witches in

    Eight of swords
    Trouble or trick
    Kill the heretic
    Kill the heretic
    Eight of swords
    Devil's cards of sin
    Let the witches in
    Let them in now

    Eight of swords
    Trouble or trick
    Kill the heretic
    Kill the heretic
    Eight of swords
    Devil's cards of sin
    Let the witches in
