Lyrics

Lies
Succumb to me
So come and see
What I have found

Ask me why
We have to go
If you have to know
What I have found

Ask me why
We leave tonight
We leave the light
Beneath the ground

Ask me why
We have to go
You have to know
What I have found

Hold the roses
And pray
Hold the roses
And pray

Hold the roses
And pray
Hold the roses
And pray

Lies
Succumb to me
So come and see
What I have found

Ask me why
We have to go
If you have to know
What I have found

Ask me why
We leave tonight
We leave the light
Beneath the ground

Ask me why
We have to go
If you have to know
What I have found
