Lyrics
There is no booze left in the house
There is no air left in the room
But still some fuel left for the fire
Colossus of Rhodes

There are no signs of struggle here
There are no signs of forced entry
Could have been you, might have been me
Colossus of Rhodes

Though we've had break-ins before
We've had break-ins before

There is no point in trying to run
The calls are coming from the house
But change the locks on every door
Colossus of Rhodes

'Cause we've had break-ins before
We've had break-ins before

I'll point the way to my front door, to the exit lights
It's not too late to get there, it's not too late to kick you out
And after all these lifetimes, to see it all go south
If the party's over, it's not too late to kick you out


Yeah, we've had break-ins before
We've had break-ins before
We've had break-ins before
We've had break-ins before

You have no friends left in this place
Don't put no flowers on this grave
We think the patient can be saved
Colossus of Rhodes
Colossus of Rhodes
Colossus of Rhodes
Colossus of Rhodes
