lyrics

(Fooled you once, Fooled you twice
Now this city....)

Vague were their eyes
As if withholding little secrets
Fixed upon their need to quench a thirst
"Just one drink's enough for me
But i can't speak for the shadow beneath me"

Creeping, Crawling, Desperately

Make, Make me believe
That i am a fountain, leave me dry
Well i'll show you empty, I'll show you empty
Take all you need from me
I'll bring the Famine

They took her eyes for the
Beauty she sees in all things
Viles of tears worn proudly around their necks
Memories of loved ones lost
And the girl that got away
And he's left with nothing
Everyone is left with nothing

Creeping, Crawling, Desperately

Show me all of your darkness, your secrets
"Don't you know there's no escaping me?"
You are the fountain, I'll make you belive
Make you believe

Make, Make me believe
That i am a fountain, leave me dry
Well i'll show you empty, I'll show you empty
Take all you need from me
I'll bring the Famine

Wash your greedy hands with me
Well, i'll show you empty, I'll show you empty
Take all you need from me
I'll bring the Famine

(Fooled you once, Fooled you twice
Now this city....)
"Ladies and Gentlemen, the sky is falling"

I've created a monster
Rage overflowing, you're done taking from me
As the Earth pulls you under
I'll show you empty when you are burried

Left with nothing, Watch them flee

Make, Make me believe
i am a fountain, leave me dry
Well i'll show you empty, I'll show you empty
Take all you need from me
I'll bring the Famine

Wash your greedy hands with me
Well, i'll show you empty, I'll show you empty
Take all you need from me
I'll bring the Famine
