I gave my love out like a lonely child
to far out reaches of the land
I watched the devil cradle sunshine
fanned its flames beneath my hand

no rest for those in the wintertime
they're burnin' oil till the morn’
tellin’ tales of glory
only to be reborn
to be reborn

the moon it comes out a shinin’
to tell its brother to obey
but the sun keeps howlin’ more
to make a workin’ man pay

they build up strawmen in the daytime
then light a match beneath the hay
from dusk to dawn oh
it keeps on burnin’ now
burnin’ away
oh burnin’ away

in a dimly lit castle
hallways made up of stone
they'll send statues out to get you
cast you out of your home

be careful with every goblet
vials laced with cyanide
for vengeance is a virtue that a hurtin’ man
he will justify
