Doppelganger

lyrics

Back against the wall
Laugh it off, let it slide
Plot like Dr Jekyll
And play like Mr Hyde

Livin' off the fume
Drink it in, breathe it deep
Jekyll is the dreamer
But it's Hyde who will let you sleep

Doppelganger
Double-edged
Bury me tonight
Down where all the demons go
Keep me out of sight
One recedes so one may rise
Keep the status quo
Angels, when you come for me
Bury me below

Limbo is the lure
Nothing felt, nothing found
Jekyll has no memory
And Hyde don't make no sound

Siren on the wind
Little lies in the black
Jekyll tries to warn you
That Hyde, he is comin' back

Doppelganger
Double-edged
Bury me tonight
Down where all the demons go
Keep me out of sight
One recedes so one may rise
Keep the status quo
Angels, when you come for me
Bury me below

Stumblin' is easy
When there's no one there to see
Don't look back, my friend
And don't you dare come back for me

Stumblin' is easy
When there's no one there to see
Don't look back, my friend
And don't you dare come back for
Dare come back for me

Bottom of the glass
Lift it up, let it bide
Here's to Dr Jekyll
And cheers to Mr Hyde

Knock upon this door
If you must, but beware
Jekyll made the monster
And Hyde will never ever care

Doppelganger
Double-edged
Bury me tonight
Down where all the demons go
Keep me out of sight
One recedes so one may rise
Keep the status quo
Angels, when you come for me
Bury me below
