lyrics

Rivals

The lookout signs
“Dust on the horizon
We can’t stall them any longer”
Take your stand
Seven on the highland
Loaded up
I can see them coming down

Give ourselves a chance to make things even
Give ourselves a break from this air we breathe
Don’t make a sound when mothers frown
Bandages ripped from her bridal gown
What you gonna do when it’s all over
What you gonna say if we make it through somehow
You better believe it
You and I are rivals now

We’re in a masquerade
You wear paint stains on your face
I can't believe the things I’m seeing now
We’re in a masquerade
You’ve got tales all over your face
You and I are rivals now

One more step
We can smell their sweat
From under the floorboard
We can hear their spurs drag
On the count of three
It all comes down to me
As the sun goes down at noon
It hurts to see
You are sorry, too

I never thought you would leave like this
With a gun on your hip and a Judas kiss
Riling me up, putting me down
Waking the beast in a quiet old town
What you gonna do when it’s all over
What you gonna say if we make it through somehow
You better believe it
You and I, we're rivals now

We’re in a masquerade
You wear paint stains on your face
I can't believe the things I’m seeing now
We’re in a masquerade
You’ve got tales all over your face
You wanted me to fight
So look out now

Now it’s hand to hand - Skin to skin
Man to man - Sin to sin
The top is the bottom - and the bottom is the top
It’s a kick in the face - and we can not stop

We’re in a masquerade
You got us bleeding face to face
Is this what you had in mind?
Look at the mess we made
We brought our whole world crashing down
Leaving us as rivals now
