You are my instigator You are my aggravator
You are my space invader
Cautionary warning I propose
You are my complicator You are my instigator
You are my aggravator
Cautionary warning I propose to you

.

I guess the boy took it one step over the line
Sold his soul to the dark unholy sign
Now, only time will tell
Will it take you down or will you pull through
It's like a voice from the burning fires of hell
Selling sin now you've fallen for the spell
And only time will tell
Will it take you down or will you pull through
It's calling out to you

.

So now you're down
Have you lost yourself control
To the one you believed could save your soul
Now only time will tell
Will it take you down or will you pull through
Like a voice in the darkness of the night
Telling tales you've become what you despise
And only time will tell
Will it take you down or will you pull through

.

Well I'm talking 'bout the isolation
complication aggravation voices inside my head
Something that you said well, I don't know
Something drove me to the act
But I just couldn't recollect
If it was 10 or was it 20 blows
The voice said once again but I don't know
It's a fundamental fact that no one knows
who's where or what they are at
At any time of day there's no one left to say

- So who's to know -
