Song

Lyrics

One, two, three, four, five, six, zeven
Go on spit it out, it's nearly zeven
I'm out under open skies and barely hidden
Paving my way through dusty beaches
Burying our memories so start the digging

Six, zeven, nine
Gotta synchronise
Control each moment in time
High roller I
Don't look for signs
Though they're everywhere

Go on spit it out, it's deadly venom
I've got a severed tongue and a razor sharp vision
Paying my way with rocks and leeches
Making new enemies so start the hitting

One, two, three, four, five, six, zeven
(One, two, three, four, five, six, zeven)
Six, five, four, three, two, one vision
One now undone, did you miss me?
(One, two, three, four, five, six, zeven)
Empty pockets, full of ambition

Go on spit it out, it's nearly zeven
I'm out under open skies, panic stricken
Six, zeven, nine gotta roll the dice
I'm your girl, I'm your girl
Walking the line
Your slayer bride
Violently tired
I'm tired of giving them all my cred

Go on spit it out, it's nearly zeven
Go on spit it out, it's nearly zeven
