Em
(what a nice surprise)
           
F#    
bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling
the pink champagne on ice
And she said
"We are all just prisoners here
of our own device"
And in the master's chambers
they gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
but they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember
I was running for the door
I had to find the passage
back to the place I was before
"Relax" said the nightman
"We are programmed to receive"
"You can check out anytime you like
but you can never leave"
