  • All bets are off but you still
    Think that you've gotta a right well
    Your lucky days are numbered now
    (And you're to blame)
    You built a castle of sand
    Shaking the devil's hand well
    At least I've still got my soul to sell

    You've got to take me away
    'Cause I wanna feel (wanna feel)
    Something that's real (thing that's real)
    Help me escape
    'Cause I wanna be (I'll take my last breath)
    Left to be free (I just wanna fake my own death)

    You played your part of the whore
    You got some kinda nerve or
    Have you forgot I don't forget
    (And you're too late)
    You walk beside the dead where
    The angels never tread well
    At least I've still got a soul to sell

    You've got to take me away
    'Cause I wanna feel (wanna feel)
    Something that's real (thing that's real)
    Help me escape
    'Cause I wanna be (I'll take my last breath)
    Left to be free (I just wanna fake my own death)

    There's nowhere to run
    From hell and above
    I swear to a god that someday
    There will be blood

    It all comes down in the end
    In spite of me you do it all again
    It all comes down in the end
    In spite of you I'll do it all again

    You've got to take me away
    'Cause I wanna see (wanna see)
    Something that's real (thing that's real)
    Help me escape
    'Cause I wanna be (I'll take my last breath)
    Left to be free (I just wanna fake my own death) Writer/s: DERYCK WHIBLEY
