lyrics
You put the storm out, that's up in my head.
You put the call out, beside of me, kick up inside of me.
And you steal the world and live to survive,
And shake out the ghosts and then you turn around,
In spite of me, kick up inside of me.

One for the first time,
Two for the last time,
Three for the thrill and,
Four for the last time,
As far as I can see, you're gonna,
Move deep deeper deep inside of me.

Kick away my life kick away.
You put the fear in me, kick away, kick away.
As far as I can see you move deep deep inside of me.
Take me away, take me away, up to another day,
Open up the way, lead me away in the pouring rain,
In the pouring rain.

You put the storm out, that's up in my head,
You put the call out.
Beside of me, kick up inside of me.
And we steal the world and live to survive,
Shake out the ghosts and turn around,
In spite of me, shake up the ghosts inside of me.

One for the first time,
Two for the last time,
Three for the thrill,
And four for the last time.
As far as I can see, you're gonna,
Move deep, deeper, deep inside of me.

Take me away, ah ah ah until another day,
Take me away, kick away,
As far as I can see you put the fear inside of me,
Kick away.
