Alesana The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Marionettes Lyrics

Hey, stranger what's your name?
Have we met before?

Take a look around, the scenes are all the same
I can see the veil is right behind me
I'll close my eyes and this will go away
Have I ever said this before?
If I just keep moving will I be okay or panic in the mayhem?

I can't take it, I'm battered and broken, abandoned forever!

It's round and round and round we go
Somebody please let me know just what it takes to begin,
To start all over again

The truth has finally shown it's face,
How long have I been in this place?
I never had a choice, you blinded me and stole my voice
I will see you soon...

Hey, stranger what's your name?
Have we met before?
Do I even dare to question fate's design or submit to such a bleak destiny?
There has to be another way than this, it's a hopeless fight anyway
I will not give up and wash away the sin, I'm thirsting for the carnage

I can't take it, I'm battered and broken, abandoned forever!

It's round and round and round we go
Somebody please let me know just what it takes to begin,
To start all over again

The truth has finally shown it's face,
How long have I been in this place?
I never had a choice,
You blinded me and stole my voice
I will no longer take flight from you...

Now that you've got me, what's next?
Let me help...
Now I destroy you, demon
Sinew is ripped to shreds
Stripped from your body, crimson
Fury of righteousness will now consume you in death

It's the sweet, sweet song of your heartbeat
All I feel is a memory
Of the night I laid in bed with you
It's the easy sound of your breathing
Telling me what I should've seen
Where was I when you fell fast asleep?
I can't live without you by my side

It's round and round and round we go
Somebody please let me know
Just what it takes to begin,
To start all over again
It's round and round and round we go
Somebody please let me know
Just what it takes to begin,
To start all over again
