End Verse

Lyrics:
I've been looking so long for you now that you wont get away from my grasp
You've been living  so long in hinding in hinding behind that false mask
And you know that I know you ain't got that time to last
Your looks and you feelings are just the remains of your past

You're standing in the wings, there you wait for the curtain to fall
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all     
Yeah I know you're gonna scratch me and maim me and maul
You know I'm helpless from your mesmerising cat call

Keep your distance walk away. Dont take his bait.
Don't you stray, don't fade away.

Watch your step, he's out to get you, come what may.
Don't you stray, from the narrow way.
