lyrics

Cracklin’ down the wire, a voice I recognise—
Don’t make no difference who you know—
You best say your goodbyes.
Hear a god of dust speak to a god of flame:
Say no use burnin’ out there on your own,
A face without a name.
Gonna find a friend; gonna treat him kind—
Say you don’t have to worry anymore,
It’s only in your mind.

Better watch your back; better to think twice—
Yeah, they’re just makin’ time
For the sacrifice.
Said walk with me a while;
step out on the dawn.
By the time you hit the ground,
I’m gonna be long gone.
None of this is new; it’s like a fortune wheel—
You can follow anywhere it goes,
But that don’t make it real.
Blood on a whitewashed wall—
There’s a knife in you too.
You can’t feel nothin’ on the altar stone,
But the blade is true.

Better watch your back; it’s a cruel device—
Waits in the shadows ‘til the perfect time
For the sacrifice.

Don’t think I’ve gone away—
Ain’t gonna leave you be.
You forged your irons alone;
I only set you free.
But this is by design, every single move.
Every repetition made
cuts a deeper groove.
So watch it drain away,
with television eyes,
And rest assured, a mouth gone cold
Won’t tell any lies.

Better watch your back—
I ain’t gonna warn you twice.
I’m just a-keepin’ time,
I’m just a-killin’ time,
I’m just a-waitin’ ‘til the perfect time
For the sacrifice.
