Prophets making profits Taking orders on your soul You will live forever in your tower But you will be screaming out All fear and hate are creeping While everyone is sleeping Block out the pain you give me Blot out the stain you can’t see Spare the rod, suffer the child Spare the rod, suffer the child Taste God, suffer the child Spare the rod, Suffer the child Spare the rod, suffer the children Preemptive war or a tumbling building? Big and strong, fast and mean I built me a big revenge machine Spare the rod, suffer the child Where is God? And is he alive? He’s not dead; no He’s the one Who put the bullet in your gun All fear and hate are creeping While everyone is sleeping Block out the pain you give me Blot out the stain you can’t see Spare the rod, suffer the child Spare the rod, suffer the child Taste God, suffer the child Spare the rod, Suffer the child Abstain from appearance of evil Pass through the eye of the needle Judge me, judge me not My carnal reality is all that I got Born to break, bred to take Don’t want to die before that I wake 'Cause I am the appearance of evil My faith is beyond retrieval Spare the rod, suffer the child Spare the rod, suffer the child Taste God, suffer the child Spare the rod, Suffer the child

Sinking in my wasteland My arms surround you Beauty; perfect in your loneliness My holiness You think I’m so harmless Don’t blink - 'cause I’m heartless My invention, My demention Self affliction is forever Turn out the light and bring it on My life, my soul, my dreams A gift to sell in a living hell Save my love, I own nothing I own nothing Sinking in the quicksand Darkness surrounds you Beauty, perfect in your holiness Is my homeliness Don’t think that I’m heartless Just blink and I’ll do the rest My invention, your demention Self affliction is forever Turn out the light and bring it on My life, my soul, my dreams A gift to sell in a living hell Save my love, I own nothing I own nothing Turn out the light and bring it on My life, my soul, my dreams A gift to sell in a living hell Save my love, I own nothing I own nothing

Punch me and kiss me And peel my skin away Devil inside of me; can’t break free Won’t you please lead me astray? Don’t think, don’t blink Don’t even try and pacify Your thousand sins A million different ways to die Drop it, Drink it Killing what you feel inside Praying to your suicide Believe in something no one seeks It takes your pain away; It’ll take your pain away Get on your knees and learn to crawl Never get up, never wake up Don’t think, don’t blink Don’t even try and pacify Your thousand sins A million different ways to die Drop it, drink it Killing what you feel inside Praying to your suicide Unplug me from my resentments Pump me full of compliments If I can’t feel, then how do I live? Twist my thorn of indifference Touch me and heal me Before I fade away Curse me then cure me I’m the one Who will betray, who will betray? Don’t think, don’t blink Don’t even try and pacify Your thousand sins A million different ways to die Drop it, drink it Never wake up

Tear you down Steal your crown I breathe your breath Feel your death If fear is all You can feel Then fear us all For we are real Don’t blame me Just 'cause I can see Don’t place your bet 'Cause it’s only death If fear is all You can feel Then fear us all For we are real If fear is all You can feel Then fear us all

Splinter in my eyes got me staring at the sky Casting the first stone ‘cause I don't want to be alone Black hole in my soul, I can’t fill this God-shaped hole Can't you re-define what's in my heart what’s in my mind? Now don't turn away; I got so much to say And it just can't wait, just can't wait I've waited a lifetime, is it enough time? And it just can't wait, no it just can't wait anymore I’ll build the walls up high push those feelings down inside. Die-cast into stone, concrete flowers I have sown Black hole in my soul I can't fill this God-shaped hole Big Bang the world began and left me in my sinking sand Now don't turn away; I got so much to say And it just can't wait, just can't wait I've waited a lifetime, is it enough time? And it just can't wait, no it just can't wait anymore Don’t turn away from me Don’t turn away from me Now don't turn away; I got so much to say And it just can't wait, no it just can't wait I've waited a lifetime, but is it enough time? And it just can't wait, no it just can't wait It just can’t wait
