  • Roll of the dice
    Take a spin of the wheel
    Out of your hands now
    So how do you feel?
    But you're not gonna win
    You'd better go back again
    Do you feel lucky
    Or do you feel scared?
    Take what luck brings
    And the Devil may care
    But you're down on your luck
    What will the next day bring?

    Adrift on the ocean
    Afloat in a daydream
    Or lost in a maze
    Or blind in the haze
    So what does it matter?
    So why don't you answer?
    So why did you send
    An angel to mend?

    Best make decisions
    Before it's too late
    Take all your chances
    Take hold of the reins
    A roll of the dice
    Ahead of the game again

    Nothing to lose
    But so much to gain
    A little danger
    It goes without saying
    But what do you care?
    You're gonna go in the end

    Gate open to heaven
    Is ready and waiting
    Or straight down to hell
    Can go there as well
    I'll suffer my craving
    My soul's not worth saving
    So why don't you go?
    Just leave well alone

    Don't you think I'm a savior?
    Don't you think I could save you?
    Don't you think I could save your life?

    Don't you think I'm a savior?
    Don't you think I could save you?
    Don't you think I could save your life?

    There's like a hunger
    That knocks on your door
    You've had a taste of it
    Still you want more
    You've made your mistakes
    Won't play it the same again

    You have been warned
    But still you plunge in
    You play high stakes
    But there's nothing to win
    You've only one life
    And so many things to learn

    The Angel on one side
    The Devil the other
    Which path do you take
    Decisions to make
    Arrive at the crossroads
    You know where you're going
    And what if you wait
    It may be too late

    Don't you think I'm a savior?
    Don't you think I could save you?
    Don't you think I could save your life?

    Don't you think I'm a savior?
    Don't you think I could save you?
    Don't you think I could save your life?

    Don't you think I'm a savior?
    Don't you think I could save you?
    Don't you think I could save your life?

    Don't you think I could save you?
    Don't you think I could save your life?

    Don't you think I could save you?
    Don't you think I could save your life?

    Don't you think I'm a savior?
    Don't you think I could save you?
