savage grace lyrics – elegy

(music: henk van der laars & dirk bruinenberg)
(lyrics & vocal melody: ian parry)

having taken a path of no return, he develops a personality of power,
and turns supreme manipulation into an art form.
on the surface he portrays a person being of caring and consideration,
while his dark side hides calmly, until the moment of truth can appear.

full of charm, so open minded
lets you talk ’till you’re blue in the face
comp*ssion sincere
his own portrayal, the proud example to others
when in fact, a covenant he’s made
with the dark side of h*ll

wait! don’t be fooled by him
stop! don’t go near him
his appearance can change, like the chameleon

we’re all his helpless subjects
and like his damaged toys
once they’re of no importance
with savage grace destroys

so supreme, a master to many
an’ acts like a friend, offers comfort to all
patiently, telling wild fabrications
gaining your trust the thrill, the thrill of it all

(repeat bridge & chorus)

get ready to run!
