LyricsEdit

United Abominations versionEdit

    I thought at this hour, any pleasure, could never really be a sin in vain
    One hundred and one shots of opportunity, I'd gladly take them all again and again, and again
    
    My angel's left me, sorrows are my own
    Now I'm here, with the Devil on my own
    Just like a churchyard shadow, creeping after me
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    
    I promised on my soul, not to get carried away
    It always starts out psychedelic, and then it turns to black
    My head starts swaying, I forgot what it was that I was saying
    I don't know where I am, and I'll never, never make it back
    
    I sealed my fate, and I paid my debt
    I fell from grace with deep regret
    
    My angel's left me, sorrows are my own
    And now I'm here, with the Devil on my own
    Just like a churchyard shadow, creeping after me
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    Just like a churchyard shadow, there's nothing left to see
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    
    My angel's left me, sorrows are my own
    Now I'm here, with the Devil on my own, on my own
    Just like a churchyard shadow, creeping after me
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    Just like a churchyard shadow, there's nothing left to see
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    
    Just like a churchyard shadow, creeping after me
    There's nothing left to see, There's nothing left of me

Th1rt3en versionEdit

    I thought a desire worth any pleasure
    Could never really be a sin in vain
    A hundred one shots of opportunity
    I'd gladly take them all again, and again, and again
    
    My angels left me with sorrows on my own
    And now I'm here with the devil on my own
    Just like a churchyard shadow creeping after me
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    
    I promised on my soul, not to get carried away
    It always starts out psychedelic, and then it turns to black
    My head starts swaying; I forgot what was it I was saying?
    I don't know where I am, and I'll never, never make it back
    
    I sealed my fate, and I paid my debt
    I fell from grace with deep regret
    
    My angels left me with sorrows on my own
    And now I'm here with the devil on my own
    Just like a churchyard shadow creeping after me
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    Just like a churchyard shadow, there's nothing left to see
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    
    My angels left me with sorrows on my own
    And now I'm here with the devil on my own, on my own
    Just like a churchyard shadow creeping after me
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    Just like a churchyard shadow, there's nothing left to see
    It's only there to terrify my mind, a black swan keeps haunting me
    
    Just like a churchyard shadow, creeping after me
    There's nothing left to see, there's nothing left of me
