lyrics

Oh that's me the heirophant
Here to reign in the ways you want
All this control don't come for free
There are worms neath the dirt but you don't want to see
Oh ya that's me oh ya that's me

Wisdom to each in apportion to his want
If you don't want to undertstand the way things got to be
Why would I force you to see the light
Want to walk the path without seeing what's next
Take my hand I'll be your guide

Oh that's me the heirophant
Here to reign in the ways you want
All this control don't come for free
There are worms neath the dirt but you don't want to see
Oh ya that's me oh ya that's me

Scared to get cut on the glass but it's only glitter
If you ever want to know the answers all you have to do is ask
But they ain't here to please your sense
Beauty lies in complexity
If you're not up for the challenge
Go on join the line
Please feel free
Oh that's me the heirophant
Here to reign in the ways you want
All this control don't come for free
There are worms neath the dirt but you don't want to see
Oh ya that's me oh ya that's me

Why would I try to keep you scared and alone
When you do it so well on your own
Keep you crying saying you can never win
And it ain't hard to teach but it's hard to learn
How to keep your sight while the world it burns
And the breaks it takes to orchestrate it all
The saint is just the next one to fall
