Hollowed out behind the mask A headlong rush into the past Keep running or you’ll lose your place Look out for number one In my heart I know that it’s a sin To wish ill will on any living thing But you make it so hard for me to be a saint I can’t wait to see you burning at the stake What lies inside? What might we find? Keep on flying through the fog Keep on denying who you are Keep running or we’ll take you down Look out for number one
