Fly through the glass of a window pane
Fall through the sky feeling the rain
Walk on broken glass your Tell-Tale Heart 

Look through the bars of a dirty jail cell
Soar to heaven dive to hell, listen to your Tell-Tale Heart

You see an apparition disappear 

Ah, jump to the table jump up the stairs
Stand on the rooftop looking out through the air
Walk on broken glass your Tell-Tale Heart 

Lenore am I dreaming
How can death keep us apart
Lenore I see you burning...
And I'd, walk on burning embers
Walk on burning embers
Walk on burning embers Tell-Tale Heart 

Walk on burning embers
Walk on burning embers
Walk on burning embers 
Tell-Tale Heart
