Lyrics & Chords‎ > ‎


by Wax Mannequin

Beware, beware
Take heed, take care
You set up shop in town
Old Hooper's shop burned down

/ Am - / E Am / Am Dm / E Am /

You should know out here
We have a way held dear
You're welcome to your own
But help the meek along

Believe, believe
My humble word is free
Good will's Augustus best
Insurance policy

But hope to fix the game for none but self and kin and clan
You'll falter as you tread upon the back of common man

/ C - G - / Dm - E - /

Beware, beware
Take care, take heed
You took the factory
Cut work and half their fee

Know idle hands
Undo the devil's plans
The water kept in stone
No better kept than thrown

I know it seems
A simple peasants dream
Why should you stray your steer
Your path to power's clear

Maybe what you've done you think will be for greater good
But that won't help you none when what you've done's been understood

Beware, beware
Take heed, take care
You've pumped our paper news
To sharp and shape our views

Your words are plain
My neighbour is to blame
If baker gets the farm
And farmer gets the grain

Till stones are cast
The sinless whip them back
But benevolent armed thugs
Can quell the peasant clash

So strut and trickle down upon the seething mass of men
But the moment you misstep I'll snag your tools upon my pen

Oh oh, oh oh
No no no no no

Beware beware
Take heed, take care
We'll come to you at night
And drag you to the square

Be wise, be wise
Come clean, retract your lies
Or else your temple slaves
Will set the place ablaze

Our compass is gone
All sense of right and wrong
We'll set ourselves to flame
So long as you get what comes

May take five of us for every single one of you
But that don't scare us none you're outgunned ninety nine to two

Your final soiree's a regal banquet in the mud
We'll pass the cup around and taste the metal in your blood
Metal in your blood

Beware, beware
Take heed and care my friends
When blood from death is fair
Our wait is at an end
