lyrics

There's an old man
and he keeps me
in a subterranean area.
And he won't let you come and see me
until you fulfill his criteria

After midnight
in the full moon's light
climb way up onto a bridge
where you'll meet a friend of the old man's
and beat him to death with your fists.

Some day you're gonna die
you know it
Grow a backbone but don't
you show it.
Say to yourself
"This is it. This is it. This is it."

Wait for the day when you finally show here
blocking will get you
nowhere
Say to yourself
"This is it. This is it. This is it."
It's life at the bottom of the pit.

The old man
is a wizard
and he feeds on younger men's souls
I saw him murder an actor
just the other day
in his throne room.

And he treats me
like an animal.
I Can't wait for the day that he dies,
when I take his key and I set me free.
If he don't, I might eat him alive.

Some day you're gonna die
you know it
Grow a backbone but don't
you show it.
Say to yourself
"This is it. This is it. This is it."

Wait for the day when you finally show here
blocking will get you
nowhere
Say to yourself
"This is it. This is it. This is it."
It's life at the bottom of the pit.


I'm a monster
when I hunger,
and I feed on scorpion flesh.
When the insects crawl on the dungeon wall
my tongue makes quite a mess of them.

It's been lonely
since the wizard
disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Saw the old man turn to a young man,
then get up and leave me to die.

Some day you're gonna die
you know it
Grow a backbone but don't
you show it.
Say to yourself
"This is it. This is it. This is it."

Wait for the day when you finally show here
blocking will get you
nowhere
Say to yourself
"This is it. This is it. This is it."
It's life at the bottom of the pit.
