The Scorpion Lyrics

4. The Scorpion (5:59)
Track rating :  65 / 100      Votes :  2     
My life is everything that feeds my thirsts that doesn’t sing
My wants are all I care, no shame and guilt, there’s nothing there
Look deep into my veins, I sell deceit without a trace
Fear not what I can do, unless you want it done to you

As I climb onto your back I will promise not to sting
I will tell you what you want to hear and not mean anything
Then I treat you like a dog as I shoot my venom in
You pretend you didn’t know that I am a scorpion

Myself and sentiment, there's nothing else, there’s never been
It's my dream to be left alone with the sadness, the madness of my own
Look deep into my soul, it's black, it's cold like a bullet hole
Fear not, get off your knees, there’s no defense, you’ll do what I please

As I climb onto your back I will promise not to sting
I will tell you what you want to hear and not mean anything
Then I treat you like a dog as I shoot my venom in
You pretend you didn’t know that I am a scorpion

As I climb onto your back I will promise not to sting
I will tell you what you want to hear and not mean anything
I will treat you like a dog as I shoot my venom in
'Cause you knew all along I am the scorpion

My life to reach the shore, agonize and nothing more
My hopes to steal the ring of that you love, you all seem betrayed
Look deep into my past, the pain I feel is unsurpassed
I’m not a loaded scorpion, I’m so much worse, I’m the fallen man
