The Cleaner
Lay right there
Sleep upon the bed
Lay back slowly
Start to rest your head
Don't worry about a thing
I'll take care of you
When you wake up in the morning
You'll feel brand new
I'll walk through your soul
Just to let you know
When I'm done cleaning out your mind
You'll never let go

I peer deep inside
Into the memories and the lies
Upon your dreams I come across a man
Clad in dark clothes
I ask him his name he tells me the reaper of souls
I look him in the eye and smile nice and wide
I tell him who I am, I tell him what I say
My name is the cleaner and I am here to erase
He looks at me and laugh but just as I said
His cloak starts to fade and the erasing thus begins
I journey deep down, deep inside your soul
Your full of hateful thoughts and images of limbo
Burning alive, while you die, slowly but surely your mind will slip by
I'll do what I can, I'll save what I'll save, but I promise you nothing
This is a very dangerous place, upon this land, I rest my hand
When I set it on the ground, flames shoot out, your thoughts are burning deep
Deep inside of me, if I stay much longer I might lose my chi
Inside this place of darkness your fears do dwell
It be best to go about now but what the hell
I've gone too far, might as well finish
When I'm done here I'll be finished with my business

Look deep down, you got thoughts of suicide
Hanging from a tree with a cross in your eye
Such a sad decision you made in this land
To take your own life with the rope in your hand
Hanging from the tree dead and decayed
I see your flesh being fed on by birds and prey
I realize now, you are a lost cause, theres no point in staying
I've done what I can, to try and save your soul
I searched deep down and found limbo
But know that now, it's all up to you
So heed my words and don't be a fool
Listen to what I said, and don't go astray
For in the day you do, your life will fade away
