lyrics

Land of Thieves

Monkeys in chains
Blast off their blame
On the key holder's twisted charm

Rings on his neck when he awoke
Breath from a fire was his only hope

It's growing faster it seems
And it won't be the way I need

From Where grows that arm
holding my chains
My backs bent and tired
Are my own shoulders to blame
Shots from a blank
Echo in air
Its the chilling sound
Of going nowhere
Faster than I'd like to be going

Oh I won't go like the old
keep me soon like that new fashioned
worn out perfume

I choke on my shame
and I'll blame it on love
say I can't find anymore
It's just gone
And I can't get it back


Monkeys in chains
blast off their blame
on the key holders twisted charm
But deep down afraid
he knows he just may
Have lost the key trying to keep it away
from himself and the rest
so his madness sounds

Oh I won't go like the old
Keep me soon like that new fashioned warn out perfume

I choke on my shame
and I'll blame it on love
say I don't want anymore
Its just gone
Let it burn to the ground
