Black Scales

lyrics

He comes from his lofty mountaintop
Breathing fire and brimstone
Once he's started he ain't ever gonna stop

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

His heart's shriveled, blackened, dark as coal
Stripped to ash and brittle bone
He's got himself quite the hunger for your gold

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

You don't climb no burning mountain
You gotta feel it in your soul
Black Scales will hunt you slowly
You're lost baby, but me? I'm on a roll

A cry of thunder, a final warning sign
Then endless applause
There's no hope in the empty firelight

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

Once before we've read this story-line
The world clenched in his jaws
All the prophets foretold of war in time

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

You don't climb no burning mountain
You gotta feel it in your soul
Black Scales will hunt you slowly
You're lost baby, but me? I'm on a roll

The situation is looking pretty grim
Come join the preacher and tell me your sins
Why'd you even sell your soul to him?

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

He comes from his lofty mountaintop
Breathing fire and brimstone
Once he's started he ain't ever gonna stop

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

You don't climb no burning mountain
You gotta feel it in your soul
Black Scales will hunt you slowly
You're lost baby, but me? I'm on a roll
