lyrics

[[ 1 ]]

when you leave you better
keep on going
when you leave you better
run like hell
when you run you better
keep your footing
when you fly you better
know damn well that

someone's gonna be
behind that mirror
something's hiding in the
ringing bell
something's seeking you through
every window
Something's tracking you
with senses fell

[[ 2 ]]

when you run you better
know you mean it
when you run you better
say farewell
when you fly you better
watch your twenty
when you bolt you better
know damn well that

no one's list'ning to your
best of reasons
no one wants to hear a
thing you say
no one's giving you their
second chances
don't pretend there won't be
hell to pay

[[ 3 ]]

when you fly you better
keep your secrets
when you fly you better
never tell
when you bolt you better
leave no traces
when you leave you better
know damn well that

rage is never on the
side of heaven
fury never has an
upper bound
vengeance weans itself on
indignation
better pray that you are
never found

[[bridge]]

[[ 4 ]]

when you're gone you maybe
might discover
when you're gone you maybe
breathe again
when you're gone you maybe
float so freely
when you're gone you may think
now and then that

this time might just be the
time to make it
this place might just be the
place you keep
'till the horrors find you
unforgotten
whispering tortures to you
in your sleep

[[outro]]

when you leave you better
keep on going
when you leave you better
run like hell
