lyrics

I sold my soul where
Only lonely angels would go
Beneath the street to
Lift my spirit high off my feet
But while I take my daily dose of liquid mistake
I feel the sun set
Under my skin

And as the night falls
I hear the pulse of the devil
Beating out his
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo

With a bridge over my head
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo
I keep my dirty secrets hid
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo
Til one day they cut their way to you

Connect my dots
Shake myself and untie my knots
I want to be free from these
Chemical dreams

I know my band of
Patient friends are waiting for me
So I turn my back on
Hollow release

And as the night falls
I hear the wolves of the city
Howl and I sing
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo

With a bridge over my head
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo
The call of the moon I soon forget
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo
Mystical lantern light the dark path through
The song our ancestors once knew
It's calling me back to you
