lyrics

Stealing the breath straight from your chest out of your lungs
What's your request, a final song
Would you mind if I sing along
Sharpen up my teeth and pull my tricks right from my sleeve
There's hell to pay

Where the offense is won't you let the great axe fall
We're closing chapters after all
We're in the business of curtain calls
And if you don't behave oh you'll have one foot in the grave
There's hell to pay

Let the light in just a little longer
To make sure there has not been a mistake
Examine you from every ugly corner
Before you're off to bend to burn to break

Cross the line I've drawn into weathered sand
Pull the tidings from my hands
And then you fail to meet demands
Soon you'll know there's hell to pay
Cold calculations did I break your concentration
If you get out what you give
Well surely you've no will to live
Soon you'll know
There's hell to pay

Let the light in just a little longer
To make sure there has not been a mistake
Examine you from every ugly corner
Before you're off to bend to burn to break

I'll be the voice that you cannot shake from your head
I'll crack the ice on which you tread
I'll speak the words you want unsaid
Well heaven help me now
Cuz I have sworn and I've avowed
There's hell to pay

I'll be the eyes that you feel on you in the dark
I'll be the unrelenting spark
And I never miss my mark
So say your last farewell
And oh make sure you do it well
There's hell to pay

Let the light in just a little longer
To make sure there has not been a mistake
Examine you from every ugly corner
Before you're off to bend to burn to break
