When I took this job I was a friendless loser with a want to inflict more pain,
than the countless caustic jibes that you sent my way.
But I was perfect for this they said and I thought I’d found it
They’d pass the judgment and I’d take the guilty bound into the pits forever.
But they locked me in too.

And it’s so dark in here
I thought I’d like that.
Forever’s so much longer when you say
it’s for all time.
And hey. I was no solution
Just a pawn in your planned confusion
Say one hundred times, say one hundred times.

(And so they make)
I tore limb from limb
(To raise the stakes)
Those you said had sinned
(Who took the bait)
And now you say
(It was the snake)
It was the snake
(Given the guise)
I’ve burned and maimed
(Of king of Lies)
I’ve slashed and chained
(Brought to shame)
Brought all to shame
Those who would not toe the line

Li da lia la da di da

(But the flock they strayed)
Open the gates
(The fruit they ate)
And let me out
(There’s no more room)
There’s no more room for you
We see what you’re about
(Our end has come)
Though I had my part to play
(Our race is run)
I was made by those who say
Let sinners be our customers
they’ll pay just to get out
