Hello madness my old friend
answer me one question, tell me
where are you taking me now?
Please be gentle
I ain't got no insurance
I'm as fragile as the law will allow.
Well now, smarty pants, you have a point,
I chased you down there for so long.
Put your faith in fire.
Have your faith in fire repaid.
I put my faith in fire
and had my faith in fire
repaid for a song.
