  • I thought a desires worth any pleasure,
    Can never really be a sin in vain
    One hundred and one shots of opportunity,
    I'd gladly take them all again and again and again

    My angel's left me, sorrows are my own
    Now I'm here, with the Devil on my own
    Just like a churchyard shadow, craving after me
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me

    I promised on my soul, not to get carried away
    It always starts on psychedelic, and then it turns to black
    My head starts swaying, I forgot what was that I was saying
    I don't know where I am, and I'll never, never make it back

    I sealed my fate, and I paid my debt
    I fell from grace with deep regret

    My angel's left me, sorrows are my own
    Now I'm here, with the Devil on my own
    Just like a churchyard shadow, craving after me
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    Just like a churchyard shadow, there's nothing left to see
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me

    My angel's left me, sorrows are my own
    Now I'm here, with the Devil on my own
    On my own

    Just like a churchyard shadow, craving after me
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    Just like a churchyard shadow, there's nothing left to see
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me

    Just like a churchyard shadow, craving after me
    There's nothing left to see, there's nothing left of me Writer/s: DAVE MUSTAINE
