Pendulum's, "Witchcraft"
Misheard Lyrics:
It's in your eyes, a color fade out
Looks like a new transition
They're starting up, I'm shaking your ground
Turning your head to see in a new day callin'
Doesn't feel like a hand to lean on
A snapshot from where you were born
I'm looking for a hand in the rough
You're calling the wire
Well I'll miss you all!
[Verse 1] Leaving through the action
Call in a cellphone's rave
Bleeding on a sofa
Gener of the wasteland
He's calling and she knows it
Even if she knows why
Flips it in a hallway
Girl, you have a bad time
[Chorus] You gotta get out
Go far away...
[Verse 2] Tigers in a bedroom
Maybe she's wasting up
Maybe she was at leash
Just come back from the club
I can't hear her breathing
Something doesn't seems right
Kill her in the hallway
We're living in a "said" time!
[Chorus]
Original Lyrics:
It's in your eyes, a colour fade out
Looks like a new transition
It's starting up and shaking your ground
Turning your head to see a new day calling
Does it feel like a head to lean on
A snapshot from where you were born
I'm looking for your hand in the rough
You're caught in the wire
Well, I'll lift you out
[Verse 1] Leading on the action
Caught in a cell phones rays
Bleeding on a sofa
Staring at the waistline
He's coming and she knows it
Even though she knows why
Footsteps in the hallway
Girl you haven't got time
[Chorus] You gotta get out
Go far away
You gotta get out
Go far away
[Verse 2] Darkness in the bedroom
Maybe she is resting up
Maybe she was out late
Just come back from the club
I can't hear her breathing
Something doesn't seem right
Killer in the hallway
We're living on a set time
[Chorus]
