3. Waiting (4:27)
Just after midnight, they are bringing me my pills
Just after midnight, lights are out...at Black Hill
But they don't know me...they don't know me at all
Tonight pills will be chills will be kills

Waiting in the dark, I cannot take another night
Waiting in the dark, I cannot take it anymore

If I don't take my medication, they will all be here
But I think I fooled them, I think...I'm in the clear
"Nursie" doesn't know...this is her last night
She even brought the key, that's gonna set me free

Waiting in the dark, I cannot take another night
Waiting in the dark, I cannot take it anymore

Tonight I'm taking her instead
My hands are so much stronger
Than her isty-bitsy little head

[SOLO: Herb]

Empty eyes are staring at the wall
I cannot hear her breathing anymore

[SOLO: Herb]

I'm looking for the key in her hand
That bluish little hand

Running through the empty halls of this forgotten
place
Unlocking doors...that never opens
But now I've got the key...the key to freedom
And I'm unlocking doors that never should be opened

Waiting in the dark, I cannot take another night
Waiting in the dark, I cannot take it anymore

6,6,6 miles...I've been running through the woods
6,6,6 miles...and now before me, the cemetery gates

I climb the gate between life and death
I walk upon the moolit graves
I'm home
