Lyrics
Way down, way down deep
where the demons lurk, where the demons sleep
there's a fire burning over white, hot coals
it's saying, "snap, crackle, pop" as the cold wind blows

And it's all a mirage, it's all been a tease
The liars, the jokers, the rapists and the thieves
It's all been a dance to save our souls
Or leave us rot in hell in the freezing cold
And that's just how it goes
None of us really know
But I don't believe anything that I'm told
And that's just how it goes

Cry me a waterfall, tear up the town
Are there any other honest people around
Cause I'm crashing into walls made of fear and doubt
And I'm still not drunk but my faith is running out

Is it all a mirage or maybe just a tease?
Annie Lenox said, "Sweet dreams are made of these"
Has it all been a dance just to save our souls?
Or leave us rot in hell in freezing cold?
And that's just how it goes
None of us really know
But I don't believe anything that I'm told
And that's just how it goes

Waiting, all of us waiting
We will be happy when or if this or that happens.
Changing, it's all been changing
And I can feel myself changing from within

From way down, way down deep
where the demons lurk, where the demons sleep
there's a fire burning over white, hot coals
it's saying, "snap, crackle, pop" as the cold wind blows

And it's all a mirage, it's all been a tease
The liars, the jokers, the rapists and the thieves
It's all been a dance to save our soul
Or leave us rot in hell in the freezing cold
And that's just how it goes
Nobody really knows
But I don't believe anything that I'm told
And that's just how it goes
That's just how it goes.
