Link By Link Lyrics

by Soundtrack

Jacob Marley

It is required of every man
That his spirit travel far
Lending help to those he can
No matter who they are

But if you don't go forth in life
Spreading joy and easing pain
Your spirit will go forth in death
And you shall wear a chain

These were coins I hoarded for a rainy day
Now with every jingle Im distressed
Locks and keys that helped me keep the poor away
That's what put these locks and keys around my waist

Link by link, my chain was getting longer
Link by link, I should have heard it clink
Link by link, each year a little stronger
Link by link by horrifying link

Stacking up my silver and my bits of gold
Filling up my vault when day was done
Well vaults are made of lead and cash is very cold
And around your neck they weigh a bloody ton

Link by link, you're on the brink
It's written here in blood red ink
Unlock your heart, it's not too late
Or you'll be dragging something more than twice this weight.

Ebenezer Scrooge

No please

Jacob Marley

Ebenezer Scrooge

Ebenezer Scrooge

Yes?

Jacob Marley

You shall be visited by three ghosts.

Ebenezer Scrooge

No thank you

Jacob Marley

When the clock strikes one, the ghost of Christmas Past

Ebenezer Scrooge

I prefer not to think about the past

Jacob Marley

When the clock strikes two, the ghost of Christmas Present

Ebenezer Scrooge

At present I'd rather go to bed. Goodnight.

Jacob Marley

When the clock strikes three, the ghost of Christmas Yet To Be
Three ghosts who yet may stop you ending up like me

You remember our colleague, Mr. Haynes
Mean to the bone he was.

Ghost 1

I never had a heart

Ghost 2

I never lent a hand

All Ghosts & Jacob Marley

See these sorry sticklers who were once like you
Dragging chains of all that we acquire
All the good in life it's now too late to do

Headless Ghost

Not to mention this can really make you tired

All Ghosts

Link by link, your chain is in the making
Link by link, no way to make it shrink
Link by link, just listen to it shaking

Link by link by horrifying..

Link by link by link by link by link by link by

Link by link, your life must be corrected
Link by link, and sooner than you think
Link by link or you shall be connected
Link by link by horrifying link
