Nemesis

lyrics

I'm going to make you sick
I'm going to make you ill
I will put you to bed
I will suck all your breath
You'll get hot
You'll get cold
You'll do exactly as your told
and you'll pay for the pledges you broke


I'm going to make you sick
I'm going to do you in
I'll keep you awake
counting up your mistakes
You'll get high
You'll get drunk
You'll write lies and you'll write junk
You'll get crossed out and debunked

I'm going to make you sick
I'm going to make you ill
I'll put you to sleep
but I won't let you dream
You'll get bored (I hear the cracking of bones)
You'll get scared (under the weight your flesh)
You were warned to take good care (your nemesis is just a phantom and a weight on your chest)
of your promise (I put the ache in your heart of the fog in your head)
and now you're withered and bare
wasted and bare (it tracks you everywhere, it hunts you everywhere)
You got sick
