Skeleton Waltz


See that man out there in the Desert
Wandering around looking for God's Grave
He's lost his mind, he's run out of time
Sold all the soul he had to save

And at the Crossroads he's down to his last bone
There's nothing left for him to say
It's a world full of sorrow
There's no hope for tomorrow
But he gets down on his knees and prays

He does the Skeleton Waltz
He's down in the hole
Holding a bone
Dancing with a skull
He does the Skeleton Waltz
It's all through his head
As he steps steps so softly
Through the Dead

It's a world full of blood
And it's world full of tears
There's a god whose been forgotten for a thousand years
There's a skull on the table
And a Bible on the floor
But the house is empty no one believes anymore

I want to burn in the Desert
I want to find honey in the Cave
Step out of my skin and dance on top of my grave
I want to sing with the Devil
To the Song of God's Pain
I want to spend my last days with a fire in my brain

I do the Skeleton Waltz
I'm down in the hole
Holding a bone
Dancing with a skull
I do the Skeleton Waltz
It's all through my head
As I step step so softly
Through the Dead
