The Scorpion Lyrics

by Megadeth

My life is everything
That feeds my thirst that causes sin
My wants are all I care
No shame and guilt, there's nothing there

Look deep into my face
I sell deceit without a trace
Fear not what I can do
Unless you want it done to you

As I climb onto your back
I will promise not to sting
I will tell you what you want to hear
And not mean anything

And then I treat you like a dog
As I shoot my venom in
You pretend you didn't know
That I am a Scorpion, oh

Myself, I'm centered in
There's nothing else, there's never been
And I dream, to be left alone
With the sadness, the madness of my own

Look deep into my soul
It's black as coal, like a bullet hole
Fear not, get off your knees
There's no defense, you'll do what I please

As I climb onto your back
I will promise not to sting
I will tell you what you want to hear
And not mean anything

And then I treat you like a dog
As I shoot my venom in
You pretend you didn't know
That I am a Scorpion, oh

As I climb onto your back
I will promise not to sting
I will tell you what you want to hear
And not mean anything

I will treat you like a dog
As I shoot my venom in
'Cause you knew all along
I am a Scorpion, yeah

My lies to reach the shore
I antagonize and nothing more
My hopes, to steal away
All that you love, I'll soon betray

Look deep into my past
The pain I deal is unsurpassed
I'm not a lowly Scorpion
I'm so much worse, I'm the fall of man
