Marionettes

9 Lives and Counting 2016

Nothing is easy
Something is weighing
Down and lost again
In darkness we'll suspend
A sacrifice
To pay the price
As it pulls us all in

When I wanna believe that the sound comes recklessly
Then I'm under the aid of a will propelling me
When it gets to be that it seems out of control
Let it string me along

Down and lost again
Pull my mind again
Damned and lost again
Pay the price and pull us in

Pull the puppet string
But never be condemned of anything
And what harm could it bring
When no one sees the hands on the puppet string

With a little attached to my hand you're taking me
With another attached to a righteous memory
Just a little bit till it all gets written down
And let my soul come along

Down and lost again
Pay the price and pull us in

Pull the puppet string
But never be condemned of anything
And what harm could it bring
When no one sees the hands on the puppet string

Pull the puppet string
But never be condemned of anything
And what harm could it bring
When no one sees the hands on the puppet string

We're already free
We could show the world
The lives we've given back
Too many to speak of I'd attest
I swear that we would make it out
You and me already free
And we could show the world
The time we've given back
Too many have seen
But we'll be fine
I swear we'll be fine
Bide our time
We're fine
We're fine fine FINE

Pull the puppet string
But never be condemned of anything
And what harm could it bring
When no one sees the hands on the puppet string

Pull the puppet string
But never be condemned of anything
And what harm could it bring
When no one sees the hands on the puppet string

Pull the puppet string
But never be condemned of anything
And what harm could it bring
When no one sees the hands on the puppet string
