Lyrics by Abby Ahmad
Detour Music 2013 (ASCAP)


There is a cold breeze
Sweeping from behind
You feel a tight squeeze
Creeping up your spine
Do you believe?
Or are you out your mind?
You beg, you plead
And then you’re best to just resign
Cause when you go astray
Ghosts gonna make you pay

Your past is itchin', twitchin'
Rising from the grave
Leaving you wishin'
That you would have just behaved
See, all your colors
They got lost behind the shade
And now your hitched
Between a bullet and a blade
Cause when you go astray
Ghosts gonna make you pay

You can't run away
Got to face today
Time has shown us
What you're made of
There's been foul play
Now there's hell to pay
Time to make the predator
The prey

We’re gonna make you pay
Gonna make you pay
