Verse 1

You set fire to me and watched me burn.

You laughed at my screams, I swore I'll return.

My ashes sit on your shelf in an urn.

"It's a haunted object", you were forewarned.

Pre chorus 1

But you paid no heed,

You're brave, yes, indeed.

You planted the seed,

From which my ghost breeds.

Chorus

There's a shadow on the wall

That you pretend not to see.

There's a whispered siren call

That you pretend is not me.

There's my ghost under your skin.

You were broken, I crept in.

Now you'll have to pay, darling.

Verse 2

You covered up your crime, passed me the blame.

You showered me with sweet death, pain and shame.

Now I'm the traitor, they worship your name.

Everything I'd built has gone up in flames.

Pre chorus 2

You keep the urn now,

Like you were devout.

But I took a vow,

I'll kill you somehow.

Chorus

There's a shadow on the wall

That you pretend not to see.

There's a whispered siren call

That you pretend is not me.

There's my ghost under your skin.

You were broken, I crept in.

Now you'll have to pay, darling.

Bridge

There's just no escaping

A conscience so paper thin.

And paper cuts

Can bleed, can hurt,

As much as kerosene

With which I was set burning.

Now you'll have to pay, darling.

Now you'll have to pay, darling.

Chorus

There's a shadow on the wall

That you pretend not to see.

There's a whispered siren call

That you pretend is not me.

There's my ghost under your skin.

You were broken, I crept in.

Now you'll have to pay, darling.

Chorus

There's a shadow on the wall

That you pretend not to see.

There's a whispered siren call

That you pretend is not me.

There's my ghost under your skin.

You were broken, I crept in.

Now you'll have to pay, darling.

Outro

There's my ghost under your skin.

You were broken, I crept in.

Now you'll have to pay, darling.
