If you are the dealer - I'm out of the game
If you are the healer, means: I'm broken and lame
If thine is the glory than mine must be the shame
You want it darker - we kill the flame

Magnified, sanctified be the holy name
Vilified, crucified in the human frame
A million candles burning for the help that never came
You want it darker -
Hey baby, hey baby - I'm ready my lord

There's a lover in the story but the story is still the same
There's a lullaby for suffering and a paradox to blame
But it's written in the scriptures and it's not some idol claim
You want it darker - we kill the flame

They’re lining up the prisoners and the guards are taking aim
Our struggle with some demons they were middle-class and tame
I didn't know I had permission to murder and to maim
You want it darker -
Hey baby, hey baby - I'm ready my lord

Magnified, sanctified be the holy name
Vilified, crucified in the human frame
A million candles burning for the love that never came
You want it darker - we kill the flame

If you are the dealer, let me out of the game
If you are the healer, I'm broken and lame
If thine is the glory - mine must be the shame
You want it darker
Hey baby, hey baby
Hey baby, hey baby - I'm ready my lord
