Lyrics

He was carrying that madstone that just wouldn't fall away
So he woke up one bright morning to another broken day
Took himself down to the edge of town to the edge of his domain
Tied himself up to the fence to wait
And there he said
Here devil, here devil
Hear me when I call
You been waiting for your moment
You been waiting for my fall
Been running 'round my brain
Like you had something to say
So why don't you come tell it to my face? Tell it to my face!
Still raving at the hour
When all the witches meet
While his wife was inside crying
And his children were asleep
They had pleaded with him gently
All along that day
But he wouldn't have it any other way
And he said:
Brace yourself now children
Run along, cuz here they come
My very own abominations laughing in the midday sun He had feathers in his hair
Broken tethers flapping in the wind
And he said Come right in, I'm so glad you came! So glad you came!
And he was made to listen
'til his eyes could hear Hollow words a breakin'
Like the dawn up through the hill And he waited until
And the devil said
Boy you are a fire eater
How'd you get to be that way? Lift your eyes and drop that stone We live to fight another day Take it on back from the edge of town
From the edge of your domain
Go back home and join the human race
For who exactly do you think it was you were calling by that name? And who exactly do you think it is that's carrying your name? Yes you are the beautiful number
And this time you get away
But guess who's gonna race you 'till you're dead
'Said boy I'm gonna race you till you're dead
'till your dead
'till your dead
