You've been hiding out
For quite a while now
 Living off of people you know
 Trying to raise a little money
To pay off all the monkeys 
That you met inside the
 Rabbit hole
You take a payment from
The white witch that's spoken 
To you with Mama kin?
Well, there's a wolf outside 
A brick house screaming 
"Is someone gonna blow it in?"

 Because a mind is a weapon 
You see and it's got you on
Your hands and knees 
Pull the trigger if you got
A way out, unless you want
To count it off 1, 2 (1, 2, 3)

You better pray that there's
 Another way out
You better pray that
 Someones listening now
(Doesn't matter what you got)
'Cause when you lie like
The devil himself
No angels gonna hear your
Cry for help!

I know you must really think
It's funny, you had everybody  Pulling me in
Well, that's a little unassuming
 Considering that you knew me,
I'm the only one that called 
You a friend 

 Because a mind is a weapon 
You see and it's got you on
Your hands and knees 
Pull the trigger if you got
A way out, unless you want
To count it off 1, 2 (1, 2, 3)

You better pray that there's
 Another way out
You better pray that
 Someones listening now
(Doesn't matter what you got)
'Cause when you lie like
The devil himself
No angels gonna hear your
Cry for help!

 Count it off, 1, 2 (1, 2, 3)

You better pray that there's
 Another way out
You better pray that
 Someones listening now
(Doesn't matter what you got)
'Cause when you lie like
The devil himself
No angels gonna hear your
Cry for help!

For help, for help, for help
