lyrics

Someone said he was a whiz kid
I know that he's just a gunnin' for the bad ones
Who left scars on his little broken town
When they came around

Someone said that he was a phantom
And who knows where he goes when the darkness comes
I know he's looking for the loopholes in their plan
He becoming quite the man

If you see me in the night
Don't follow me
If you see me shine my light
Go back to sleep
If you see me in the night
Don't follow me
If this is my last goodbye
Then C'est La Vie

Got his father's money in his pocket
Carries only the compass in his locket
Turns a blind eye to whatever could be waiting in the wings
Over a thousand ugly things

Stumbles upon a red rock in the desert
Underneath is a passage to the wretched
Moves with caution because he knows not what lies beyond
The prodigal son

Attention faithful citizens of Asphodel Meadows
This is your chancellor speaking
It is my unwavering duty to notify you all that the nightly curfew is in full effect
Lock and bar all windows and doors
For a stone unturned is a precious life unguarded
We are but pawns in the devilish game that is this raucous society
The ambiguity of our darkness beckons you to serve and protect your families
Our legacy relies on you
You are the quotient

If you see me in the night
Don't follow me
If you see me shine my light
Go back to sleep
If you see me in the night
Don't follow me
If this is my last goodbye
Then C'est la vie
If you see him in the night
It's just a dream
If he's holding back that knife
Hold back your screams
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie
