Machine Head All Fall Down

Anticipating, salivating, intoxicating

How I’ve been waiting

To gently soak in

Your dream that’s broken

Caress my hands

Around your throat

When I choke the last gasp of air out of you

I’ll mesmerize you, hypnotize you

Paralyze you, my snake eyes blind you

My tenderest tickle, my gentlest prickle

The back of your neck

I stab icicles

My sweetest grin will pull you in

Behind that grin a razor teeth smile

Under your bed

Inside your head

I am the monster in wait

Walk, run

I’m the fear you’ve become

Pray, hope

Before it’s your

Downfall, and all falls down

I patronize you, victimize you

My false pretenses endear me to you

I’m psychopathic, psychosomatic

Believe everything you’ve heard about me

Ate you alive since you were a child

That’s when the monster first appeared to you

So know my name

What is my name?

My name is fear and I’m you

Walk, run

I’m the fear you’ve become

Pray, hope

Before it’s your

Downfall, and all falls down

With faith I crawl

In sadness, I fear what I’ve become

‘Cause after all

I’m acting, pretend my smile on

Before the fall

The pain washes over

Hold on, hold on

Survive

Survive

This

Walk, run

Free the fear you’ve become

Fight back

Before it’s your

Downfall, and all falls down
