Good intentions pave the way of the human child Heading for the fork as you walk the path of life A spell cast from the hiding woods, don't you close your eyes The snake is waiting anytime to penetrate your mind Don't you hear voices whispering, incline to walk down
Don't you see the shadow on the wall, angel eyes... the one cast out to fall Calling me to look up to the sky we follow but we never know oh why
A vision revealing a child down where I've sure never been An angel who's touching the flame, oh the angel is me
Nailed, nailed to the wheel - Nailed, let the cut run deep Nailed, nailed to the wheel - Nailed, I said go - let bleed! - Go, - let bleed!
Feel it crawl, feel the magic coming over like a daze Welcome as the poison for the cornered snake Taste of sin, bitter sweet, never, never let us go But never, never, never is a price we'd pay to grow
They call it original sin, some call it divine The moment the evil appeared... the chance to decide
From children in cradles to hangmen who smile Lick up the blood from the blade of your knife Walk the stairway, leading down, ride on fire, take the crown
Your mind could be strong but your flesh will be mine He's offering those kingdoms, they all could be thine Rising powers, tempting gold, but at what price would it be sold? It's all up to you...
