  • You hold it, in your hands
    And let it flow, this cruelty
    Of youth as you fall again
    Alone, In the compromise of truth

    It's in the eyes
    I can tell, you will always be danger
    We had it tonight, why do you leave it open?

    And the stakes remain too high
    For this silent mind
    And the shake, the lonely itch
    That courses down my spine
    To leave a love divine
    Don't leave a love divine
    It's a water tight excuse

    It's in the eyes
    I can tell, you will always be danger
    We had it tonight, why do we always seek absolution?
    It's in the eyes
    I can tell you will always be danger

    How does the earth around your feet
    Just slip away?
    And abandon, that greets you in the night
    With snake eyes, the most precious kind

    It's in the eyes!
    I can tell, you will always be danger!
    We had it tonight! Why do we always seek absolution?
    It's in the eyes!
    I can tell you will always be danger! Writer/s: BENJAMIN WALTER DAVID LOVETT, EDWARD JAMES MILTON DWANE, MARCUS OLIVER JOHNSTONE MUMFORD, WINSTON AUBREY ALADAR MARSHALL
