Devil In The Belfry Lyrics

8. Devil In The Belfry (4:41)
Track rating :  86.7 / 100       Votes :  3       [ ]
I dropped off in the shadows
the lead of tragedy
I open my eyes - blind by the spotlight
And what do I see?

Pushed by ambition
you've been granted admission
to the hall of acclaim
She denied you affection
Now listen the whole world
is screaming your name

I will forget her, but I won't forgive
The curtain has fallen
Behold the messiah

Riding high
The devil on the crest
For all the world to see - forevermore
I am I - the devil in the belfry
I'll be glorified - forevermore

Is it a sin to learn to be able
to live without love?
And is it a sin to put love under will
and control from above?

Devil in my fingers - pleasure at my feet
Mind out of sight
The shadow I'll cast shall darken her world
And ghost her at night

With each song you'll die a little for me
It won't leave a scar
Cause I've drawn the curtain

Riding high
The devil on the crest
For all the world to see - forevermore
I am I - the devil in the belfry
I'll be glorified - forevermore

Into the opera like moths to a flame
Spellbind their senses to follow the hero

Riding high
The devil on the crest
For all the world to see - forevermore
I am I - the devil in the belfry
I'll be glorified - forevermore
