I'm just a loser in the game of love
I'm just an stray boy in the shade
And how I wish to know what love is like
To find someone to contemplate

There's a voice in a million answers
To the questions I don't ask
A demon - I've got to contain
When I'm walking through the fen
Getting deep into the black
There are whispers that I can't restrain

Don't give in

Rise to fame - time will come
Make your claim - time has come
For the crow to fly away

So you're an angel meant to walk down here
And you believe it's all divine
And you don't play by all those temporal rules
You watch the world begin to die

Alright - when the lamb's been torn to pieces
I've been crashing from the sky
The fallen to care for the prey
They put a spoke right in your wheel
I'm the one to dare the weak
To push you all over the pain

you give in, oh

Rise to fame - time will come
Make your claim - time has come
For the crow to fly away

I close my eyes
And I see what's coming my way
He's got treasure in his eyes
That he's gonna turn to clay

Hm, I'm a stranger, I'm a changer
And I'm danger... maybe...

Fallen Angel - waiting for the prey
The devil has come to take a maimed away
Penetration of the twisted mind
The evil is out for the weaked blind

I can feel it in your voice
Ever so sweet, no
Do I really have a choice, no no no

Oh, you burn your feet on unholy ground
You roam the barren wickd plains abound
In evil lies and evil speak
Abound in all you evil freaks

When you say it's all divine
And meant be
What about your flesh and blood
And defiers like me?

Their evil eyes are looking down on you
And those who don't are losing sight of you
Facing the rage to chase away
The specter of disgrace and shame

withered roses dying on the ledge
A withered dreamer standing on the edge
You dream of love but you wake up to pain
You're better off to join in my game

Then she'll be better off to cry contrite tears
One day she'll wonder why
She had to let you disappear oh dear

Rise to fame - Your time has come
Time will come - To take the sun
Make your claim - You're drawn to the sound
Time has come - You're leaving ground

Rise to fame - the flight of the crow
Time will come - Cross the line
Time has come - For the crow to fly away
It's a flight to hell
Can you hear the bell
The devil has come
To take your soul away
A flight to hell - Alright

I'm a stranger
I'm a changer
And I'm danger
Fallen Angel
Waiting for the prey
