Features Little Scout's Pat Elliott on Organ.


They say I'm losing control
But there's nothing unplanned in this.
If truth were to be told
I feel more of a man for this.
And behind closed doors
I'll give you a golden kiss
To pay for the child
I have dismissed life itself.

And what a betrayal
You've given in payment here.
This man that I know,
This man who was known you well.
This man we both knew
Is knowing no longer.
He's laying in the forest
As I've taken life itself.

The look in your eyes
Is the look of my very own
As I carried that knife
And I saw the reflection of
My very own demise.
And in the flash of blue and red,
My domineering ploy
Has cost me my life itself.

The life that's inside
The line of my blood,
It ends here tonight,
Replaced by that two-faced rogue's.
And oh what he gave you,
The thing I refused to give,
The thing that I feared,
That thing it was life itself.
