lyrics

you never you never you never you never you never know
just what you're gonna get
so go take a risk light a match flick a wrist towards the bridge
after you pass
and smother and smolder and should you uncover a flame
well the wind is bound to catch
and wonderful wonders are going to come from
the shapes of your burning past

out with the old, in with new
killing who you've been, you were him once
but you're not him, he's not you;
you're you, now

so sever and sever and sever and sever the neck
til you get a head
oh don't take a risk with the hatchet; a gift isn't given
til it's wrapped

and smother and smolder and should you uncover a flame
well the maiden's bound to catch
and wonderful wonders are going to come from
the shapes of your burning chest

off your old self, could you be so bold?
oh, my brave, brave warrior, raise your sword
swallow all you brought; you're better off
killing who you've been, you were him once
but you're not him, he's not you;
you're you, now
