(put on the cape)

So close but so far away
Better off on my head, let the blood drip down the cape

If I’d have said something back then you could’ve helped me out
Looks like it’s my Scott Walker moment now

I knew I’d have to correct this error of mine
And now the jury’s out and they’re not coming back

In my dreams wrestling with phantoms
The cross shakes, rattled by ransom
And the cape unravels

Put on the cape

There’s nowhere I can hide when I’m so bare and undignified
So I’m coming back to life to bend the truth so it fits just right
And when the terror catches up, well I’ll just have to hope that it was worth it

Down I go, I’m moving on
To greet the host who’s leading us
Into the zone where I will get what I deserve

What was then is no more
Can’t go back to before
Down I go

All the promises mean nothing at this end
Pull the cape on, it’s time to descend
