lyrics

I stepped outside
Into the yard
And I could hear the chorus
A thousand maws
Unleashing hell
Sweet cacophony

And I know that the black cloaks
Are here for me
They know that the best meals
Are the ones you get for free

But I've been sharpening my pencils
And drawing up my master plan
And I've been sharpening my fingernails
To etch it into the palms of my hands
So it will be with me everywhere I go
In my gloves or in my fists or in the pockets of my coat

I watch the tree
Through yellow glass
And I still hear the chorus
Beckoning me out to be
A willing sacrifice

And I know that the black cloaks
Are here for me
They know that the best meals
Are the ones you get for free

But I've been sharpening my pencils
And drawing up my master plan
And I've been sharpening my fingernails
To etch it into the palms of my hands
So it will be with me everywhere I go
In my gloves or in my fists or in the pockets of my coat

We all know how this story ends
But still we go through the motions and pretend
Patience is a virtue and it will be rewarded
The black cloaks will receive the honor they must be accorded
