  • I have seen this once before
    I have felt these colors
    I have known you for so long
    When we ran in circles

    For our sake
    I will wait for you

    I walk alone, into the darkness
    I came toe to toe and face to face with the beast
    He knew me by my name, it was surprising
    He knew everything about me that I despised

    I have seen this once before
    I have felt these colors
    I have known you for so long
    When we ran in circles

    He had gold and he had silver
    He had all the women and wine that you'd ever need
    Just one thing, a prick of your finger
    Spell your name in the sand and do it with your own blood

    Bitten by the fangs of circumstance
    Outward light a reflection
    We are all equal
    Underneath the slab of material
    Mutable ways of my fortune
    Bitten by my fangs

    Gave me a smile, gave me a whisper
    Lay me down in linens to watch me sleep
    I played the fool
    I played the sinner
    I played the part of me that no one wanted to see Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
