Lyrics

What's going to turn me into an honest man
What's going to scare the ghost out of my soul
I don't want to have to comfort another victim
I just want to learn to use the things that I stole
I got to roll my own stone away
When I was with you it made me less of a fake
A coward who has to make all the rules
Remember the charmer always becomes the snake
Who always feeds it hunger and never suffers a fool
I got to roll my own stone away

When you lost your heart you thought your life was poison
Only good to dissolve like sugar in water
Your love is a bell that rings underneath the ocean
Heartless as your preacher, your dealer and your mother
I got to roll my own stone away
