Dangerous Game

It's a dangerous game that you're playing
One that you never can win
On the outside you're grabbing at angels
On the inside you're searching for sin

And you're sure to get burned from the fire
And I'm not sure you'll make it alive
With this dangerous game that you're playing
Won't be long before both worlds collide

I stand poised at the left hand of fortune
Treading softly, not making a sound
For the right hand mustn't know what I'm doing
As I prepare my descent underground

For I'm dead, I'm a dead man just stumbling
Peering through eyes that lost sight long ago
I'm a man who has claimed his misfortune
And I've lost, I've been caught in the throe

Can't you see, I'm just standing on needles
Can't you see, all the pain that I'm in?
Can't you see the effects of this evil?
Can't you see I'm just covered in sin?

With this dangerous game that I'm playing
I just know I won't make it alive
With this dangerous game that I'm playing
Won't be long before both worlds collide
