Horrendous suffering
Scattered through the mind
I take a little time to think
About what isn't mine

(CHORUS riff starts, but is only a couple of bars)

You've seen the families
Tried and burned at the stake
You never wanted to believe
In what they never tried to make

CHORUS
Give me a minute
To remember who I am
Give me a little while
To pretend to understand
What you're going through (x 4)

In time you'll learn to pray
To leave this world behind
Surrender every passing day
And hide inside your mind

CHORUS

GUITAR SOLO

(heavier, screaming)
I never promised I would be
Something that made you smile
I am a black atrocity
Perverted sense of style
Unless you think I'm dead
You have the time to say
Something we've never said
Some kind of place to stay

CHORUS
