Lyrics

Take this down to where the streets are cold and nameless
Just be sure to watch your back cuz they will 
Find you and attack you without warning
There's trouble all around this place and danger in the strangest face
If you get lost along the way just close your eyes and softly say
The silent words you never heard when you were sleeping soundly in your bed

	They won't go away
	They don't leave
	They won't go away
	They don't sleep 

We have only just begun to see the future
In the corner of our eyes a little circle will arise and start to take you
The ships are sailing in the bay and they won't leave till they've been paid
And everyone's been bought and sold but no one's worth their weight in gold
It's only just a feeling but the devil has been dealing all the cards

	They won't go away
	They don't leave
	They won't go away
	They don't sleep

I love this song! i just found out about you almost 2 weeks ago and now im hooked.
Mauro (anon) · 1 year, 10 months ago
Yeah, this song is so energetic --- contagious. :) I like it a lot. Something strange --- I don't know why but usually i like to listen to lots of songs in instrumental version. No lyrics, no voice. You, who are a songwriter and composer, maybe have an explanation for that. :) lol  Anyway, thanks a lot for letting everyone listen to your talent. Cheers  Mauro -- São Paulo, Brazil
