eight lock lyrics – gwar

no one to see
nowhere to go
nothing to do
no one to know

eighth lock
eighth lock

nothing will live
nothing will grow
no one will care
no one will know

eighth lock
you can never win
you only get out
by not going in

they put me down into the ground
lost without light, without taste, without sound
beneath the barren mound
they put me in a place they call eighth lock

eighth lock
but i’m getting stronger
eighth lock
not very much longer

no one to see
nowhere to go
nothing to do
no one to know

eighth lock
eighth lock

nothing will live
nothing will grow
no one will care
no one will know

eighth lock
you can never win
you only get out
by not going in

who the h*ll am i?
yeah, yeah, yeah
and what did you do to my hands?
i’m getting stronger

they built this place with steel
and painted it with mud
it’s constantly on fire
they put it out with blood

they said it was a prison
but became so much more
the maze it built into itself
they had to bar the door

bar the door!
quickly you fools!
nothing to do
nowhere to go

the floating eyeball is to be feared
the pupil hides a maw
they say that children run this place
that’s how they missed the fatal flaw

eigth lock
you never can win
you only get out
by not going in

no one to see
nowhere to go
nothing to do

eigth lock
you never can win
you only get out
by not going in

no one to see
nowhere to go
nothing to do
no one to know

when you come to eighth lock
it’s like some vile rebirth
where devils delve into your life
and demons deem it’s worth

the food comes through a hole
my cellmate is a troll
the warden he has hooks for hands
we all play our roles
we all play our roles
or wind up on a pole

(eighth lock)

a diabolic construct
as flesh runs rife with worms

somehow flesh and metal merge
as bloated larvae squirms
the things within they made with rules
they steal the souls of those they think are fit to play their hateful games
