I am serving time
all for a crime I did commit
you want the truth?
you know I'd do it all again
left for dead, heaven is only in my head
in my head, in my head
in my head, in my head
I heard a voice
calling from down inside the well
so let silver shine
she said to come claim what was mine
so down I fell, down into the water black
my prayers are said, only the moon was shining back
shining back, shining back
shining back, shining back
If I seemed lost
when I weighed the cost
and chose my crime
now, it's mine, all mine
I heard a voice
calling from just outside the well
she said
you fool, now that you know your island is near
you always fought for what you desire over what you fear
what you fear, what you fear
what you fear, what you fear
resurrected, living in a lighthouse
if you leave them ships are gonna wreck
resurrected, living in a lighthouse
The lions and the lambs ain't sleepin' yet
resurrected, living in a lighthouse
can you see the funny side? the ships are gonna wreck
resurrected, living in a lighthouse
The lions and the lambs aint sleepin' yet
the lions and the lambs ain't sleepin' yet
the lions and the lambs ain't sleepin' yet
