i'm serving time
all for a crime i did commit
you want the truth?
you know i'd do it all again
left for dead
heaven is only in my head
(in my head) x5

i heard a voice calling from down inside a well
(so let silver shine)
she said to come claim what was mine
so down i fell, down into the water black
my prison cell, only the moon was shining back
(shining back) x9

if i seem lost
well i weighed the cost
and chose my crime
now, it's mine
all mine

i heard the voice calling from just outside the well
she said "you fool, now that you know your end is near
you always fought for what you desire, what you fear"
(what you fear) x14

resurrectin' livin' in a lighthouse
if you leave, them ships are gonna wreck

resurrectin' livin' in a lighthouse
the lions and the lambs aint sleepin' yet

resurrectin' livin' in a lighthouse
can you see the funny side? the ships are gonna wreck

resurrectin' livin' in a lighthouse
the lions and the lambs aint sleepin' yet

the lions and the lambs aint sleepin' yet

the lions and the lambs aint sleepin' yet
